totally disagree - an advertising major was asking me the other day
why the heck (excuse her language) the quality of her phone calls to Cairo
did not improve when she upgraded her "Internet connection" -
I had to explain to her the harsh reality, that she has overprovisioned
only part of the path, and, that there's *nothing* she can do
about it.
