Hi Werner, With NBN in Australia, the speeds are amazing. I have a 'modest' plan at 100Mbps nominal but I get consistently 10 percent plus higher. And a _lot_ of people are now moving to the commonly available 1000Mbs plans, at quite reasonable cost. So for we Aussies down under, big PDF's hardly matter in terms of network bandwidth. I have no idea what the situation is in Europe or America. The National Broadband Network is a government initiative.

Everything gets fatter with time. Including me.

Sure it would be great to have slim PDF's but that does not seem to be the trend.

matter very much?
IMHO yes.  Today, PDF files are loaded *and* displayed in a browser.
The larger the file, the longer it takes until it gets displayed.
Additionally, an optimized PDF gets (normally) processed faster, which
is thus also of benefit.
