northern bandwidth? what northern bandwidth?

Rather than burn gas and run all the way down to Rogers,  I’ve gotten in the habit of renting movies from iTunes.

Online movies are pretty sweet. When you have bandwidth, that is. 

Being netlocked as we are in the Horse, online rentals can actually be an exercise in frustration. It’s taking longer to download V for Vendetta than it will to watch. I could have walked to Rogers and back by now.

My friends down south rave that it’s a much quicker download for them. I should demand some regulation and have them subsidize my internet bills, the smarmy bastards.

Eck. I’ll have to remember to start my movie downloads a week in advance from now on. Life in the Yukon. Sigh.
