As the saying goes, the latency sucks but you can't beat the bandwidth of
a plane packed with hard drives.
If the data isn't time-critical (ie: it can arrive a week after it's
generated), you can post a DVD to the US for about $7 with airmail.
Express would cost $55, but that's a couple of days and is door-to-door
Heh. 5 Gb in a week.. easily done on dial-up.... even if you used two lines to get it
there faster - it's probably faster and cheaper than airmail.
It does say "fast uplink" in the subject though.
20 Gig/mo. dial-up dude.
