Indeed. The arguments for alternatives based on the fact theyre cheap,
don't counter the fact that it's not available _everywhere_.

Thus the wider concern I flagged; if the only source for equipment and

What about developing nations where Internet isn't yet as commonplace as
it is in the 'west' ?
