the whole broadband issue is not related to installing (downloading) 
texlive, but only to some users downloading a few extras (a few meg ruby 
zip for instance)

downloading a complete os or updates for os's is another thread;

actually, if one depends on cd's dvd's for that, for the price of the 
bi-annual update cd's/dvd's one can pay the broadband -)

texlive dvd's are pretty cheap, for members only a few euro's, contrary 
to say suse or redhat professional, so that's a different issue

i remember the days when at user groups meetings we discussed the option 
to give away dvd readers to members so that we could stick to dvd's only
