This news is so fresh that the web page isn't finished. It's a slow-loader. Somebody ought to tell Saatchi that research in the UK shows that the average broadband user is prepared to wait no longer than 4 seconds for a page to load. We also have one of the slowest broadband networks in the world, thanks to relying on BT's old copper wires. Japan and South Korea are top of the league with extensive fibre-optic systems. To give you an idea how bad it is here, if I use my local library's broadband connection during a busy period, web pages take longer to load than over the 56K modem I use at home! Howzat for slow?
