Is that a British Billion? Which is a million million American http://www.askoxford.com/asktheexper...illion?view=uk

People don't generally steal fibre optic, they would rather steal copper, much better resale value.

As for the HD on XBL, I don't know, as I haven't tried it yet. From what I've seen, the bulk are 720p, and most of the rest are likely 1080i and a few 1080p (few movies are in 1080p).

I tried the i-extreme, it works as described. However I went back to regular high speed as I don't use that much bandwidth in a month, and don't really need the extra speed. Although for the internet junkies, Shaw does have Nitro http://www.shaw.ca/en-ca/ProductsSer...nternet/Nitro/
