I'm new, have been lurking a while waiting for the Australian Sitepoint but could hold back no longer.

In a recent post about design a few of you mentioned designing for high speed Internet connections.

I recently read an article in 'the standard' that said 90% of home users in the US are accessing the net at 56K or lower.

I have recently connected to cable here($$$) and Sitepoints home page takes well over 30 secs to load.

Whatever the reason for the delay I believe we are years away from designing for high bandwidth.

By the time it finally gets here we will be designing for WAP (9K).

So what speed are you all connected at?
