RE: Digital download revenues on the way out

12Mbs is a fast internet connection. I am talking about people who are lucky to get Kbs. On a good day. For many the internet exists only in a dream of the future.

Certainly 12Mbs should be more than fast enough for CD standard streaming. However at a basic level (which 12Mbs significantly exceeds for this example) simply meeting a textbook average transfer rate suitable for the medium in question will not guarantee a connection without drop outs, buffering etc. as the actual data rate available will fluctate.

If 12Mbs is what is offered as a maximum by the ISP assume that it will be lower in practice and may be substantially lower if you live some distance from the nearest major distribution point ( "Exchange" in British English but I don't know what term you may use for it), if it's a copper twisted pair ADSL or fibre etc. There are other constraints in practice depending upon the ISP and your contractual relationship with them.
