Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
Going to be moving house soon - Internet concerns

I'm not sure how much you'll be able to help. Nevertheless, this has me worried.
I am currently living in an area that is approximately 1.5km from my local ADSL2+ exchange. I get decent internet performance - relatively low latency when connecting to Australian servers and playable (~200ms) connecting to American-based Battle.net servers playing Starcraft 2).
In about 2 months, I'll be moving to our new place. Its all very exciting, its a brand new house. But - we'll be more than twice as far from the exchange.
What the hell are my options? cable internet is not widely available in Western Australia, and certainly not in our area. We are not hugely constrained by budget - I'd be willing to look at all options and evaluate them, but I just don't know if there ARE any options. Are we doomed to pretty much have terrible internet from now on?
