Hello Frank,

Nice story about what has happened with the Sunray grid.
Any ideas on how this will move forward?

A little comment on the bandwidth usage: what kind of websites did you 
We noticed that consumers use other websites then technical people.
Consumer websites tend to contain much more flash, and other multimedia 
These websites require much more than 1 Mbit Sunray traffic to view them 
But we are in the lucky situation that fiber and ADSL2+ are widely 
available at affordable prices.
Did you work with ADSL 2+ in your tests?

Kind regards,
