  I am aware that there are some problems with attaining bandwidth in
some third world countries.  Most of this problem is economic based
however and is lessening almost daily.  We have operations in
125 countries currently and have little or no problems with bandwidth
presently.  So your comment of me being US centric is completely
unjustified and does not address that comment which Esther made
at any rate, nor my response to it.

  As I said (See above) and have said many times before we are in no way
US centric, as we built our organization from the outside in.  Most of
our operations come from OUTSIDE of the US.

  Your assumption is incorrect.  (See comments above)
