Sir: Charles Arthur is too quick in dismissing BSkyB's plan for a satellite Internet connection ("The digital road", 24 August).

As a typical home Internet user, only a few per cent of my connect time is spent sending requests for information or e-mails to the Internet. The majority of the time is used in receiving the huge text, graphics and sound files that come back. What could be better than a three-lane motorway in one direction and a cycle path in the other, when most of the traffic is going one way?
