With only a credit card and dressing gowns to hide their blushes, four human guinea pigs have agreed to be shut away in sealed rooms to see if the Internet can actually deliver what it promises.
The experiment is being organised by Microsoft's Internet arm, msn.co.uk, to see exactly how well the Internet can service consumers.
