But that's the whole point of why you can't compare tipping here to the US. We have a minimum wage so no one is on 2.99 per hour here. The minimum wage for people over 21 is 6.31. That's a MASSIVE...

It'll be Infinity and BT Broadband running over ADSL2+ (what most people are on). They both run over the 21CN backhaul. If you're on a small exchange which is still ADSL you'll probably be ok.

Oh right, well it's fine in my car. But it must vary depending on the aerial.
