Do we know if OECD is using median instead of the mathematical 
average that you just calculated? Your lower calculation may be 
because of the numbers of people who buy at the entry point for 
faster speed, but don't do much so don't spend what used to be a 
premium for overquota data. [I think Bigpond switched to throttling 
instead of extra charging at outrageous $/Mb prices.]

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or 
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
