Porn. It's all about the anticipation....

Or so I'm told. I have ADSL.

Price and reliability are.
No data caps, no worries about slow downs when you hit them, no worries
about sudden extra bills.

Yeah ... pretty much everything compared (as has been suggested by others)
to the NZ lack of real broadband at fair prices.

If you get Youtubedownloader (free) you can download the video
(probably flv format) and convert it to a format (e.g. wmv) that you
can play at any time without having to connect the the Net. It will
then play at full speed without the hesitations.

No need for conversion - there is plenty of software that will play
FLV files. Conversion of any video file just degrades its quality, so
you want to avoid doing that unless really necessary.
