I know several people who are forced to connect at 28.8 (or even less)
because there are no decent ISP's in their "neck of the woods." And don't
forget the issue of network congestion along the way. I looked at the site
on through a broadband connection, but it still took over a minute to load.

The generally accepted standard is just a few seconds (15, isn't it?) for a
page to load. Otherwise people will lose interest and leave the site.
Therefore, anything that makes a page too slow to load is a bad page design.
