Moral Dilema

A recent Forrester research project got me thinking. Its conjecture was pretty simple - give up TV or give up internet?

Now, I live in a house in Wales where there's internet but no TV (OK, there's the free Sky thing, but this often collapses in bad weather).

Now that you can get most of ITV, BBC, C4 and S4C online I'd go with the latter. TV without email. TV without looking up that vague fact online. TV without being on a chat service at the same time... In the Top Trumps analysis, the internet has it.

But the question is what needs rephrasing for me. Let's try:

1) Any TV service in the UK


2) A reliable 2MBps internet service

Well, this would be no comptition. 2) would win any day.
