Kiwis taking gold... "Broadband subscriber." 18 March, 2006.
Reference Number: DCDL-0001065
The scene shows an award winning ceremony at the Commonwealth Games. The gold medal goes to a beaming broadband subscriber who gets it for endurance and the second prize goes to a huge snail labelled 'Telecom' who gets the 'slow race' prize. The reference is to the criticism of Telecom about its slowness in getting faster broadband speeds in New Zealand.
