(internet) NZ left behind in broadband use  
Says the New Zealand Herald (4 November 2003): " A year of development in high-speed internet services has failed to lift New Zealand's broadband penetration. Reports by the International Telecommunications Union and the OECD put us on the bottom rungs of the international ladder."

Hmm. Quite possibly due to the ridiculous prices we have to pay for broadband here, and the fact that most of it isn't true broadband by international standards, anyway.
