Are we being naive in thinking it's anything other than internet porn that's driving the need(urge) for more speed?

I point you to the following article>

I think that's a simplistic argument.

No doubt it's true in some cases, but many Bit Torrent users are downloading movies, TV shows or Warez via this means.

One thing that is beyond doubt is the huge percentage of traffic that's used by Bit Torrents.  Personally, I don't use them as I'm on a wireless plan with 1GB International Cap and it would blow my monthly allocation in no time.  However, I saw some figures a few months back stating that 80% of traffic was used by Bit Torrents, and it is probably even more by now.

Are you suggesting David Cunliffe's motivation for splitting up Telecom is because he's a porn fiend?
