Well yes, but not in the way you think.  
My weekend was mostly filled with toddlers birthday parties, and building forts out of couch cushions and blankets.
Pretty exhausting.

Will announce winners soon :)

Bummer, nothing in my inbox :(





Chorus has spent $1.4 billion on making their xDSL broadband network faster. If your still stuck on ADSL or VDSL, why not spend from $150 on a master filter install to make sure you are getting the most out of your connection?
I install - Naked DSL, DSL Master Splitters, VoIP, data cabling and general computer support for home and small business.
Rural Broadband RBI installer for Ultimate Broadband and Full Flavour

Great entries everybody, but sadly only 2 winners.

So here are the lucky 2


l43a2 for this one extolling the virtues of a UFB connection for everybody:

"UFB is not just about the speed its about the end user experience what they love doing in a more seamless and smoother way, videos no longer need to buffer, latency for online gaming is lower giving you the edge over the competition. UFB allows you to have many different applications consuming data all over the network without interrupting service for anyone else just wanting to enjoy last night’s episode of Shorthand Street or have a High definition Skype chat to grandchildren overseas.

UFB is not just for tech nuts or geeks, nerds UFB has the ability to transform any household into the fast lane to enable experiences they have never seen possible before on older technologies. UFB is easy to use it doesn't require any knowledge for setup. UFB is just like what you've currently got but faster more reliable. UFB will allow you to embrace the new technology change your whole families experiences online enable greater learning UFB is family positive there is plenty of UFB to go around no one will be left behind.

#bigpipeufb"

and steve98 with the water metaphor.
We loved the idea of the 'aqua lung of envy'
(although surely you could have put something about a 'torrential flow in there too?):

"If the internet was made of water, you'd want it flowing through a Big Pipe.
Give a man an ADSL-sized glass, and he can sip at his not-quite-thirst-quenching drink until the bartender calls time.
Give a man a VDSL-sized pipe and he can shower in the rejuvenating spring of HD video or fill a pool with multiplayer gaming.
But give a man a UFB-sized Big Pipe and he can don the aqua-lung of envy while a world of gaming pours around him and movies flow with tidal force."

Well done guys.
Just PM me the address you want the PS4 sent to and we will get them sent over to you.
Enjoy!
