I was under the impression (s)he was outside the US and Canada. If
he is, then Solnet is his/her best option

Yes. Within a couple of days.

If someone is outside the US/Canada, this is not presently an option.
So, Solnet is where people outside should go. Personally, I think
both options are wonderful. I wish the Solnet people had the power
of the US Clients. The Solnet PC clients are about 3/5 of speed of
the DESChal clients and this makes up for their 17,000+ clients and
high TCP overhead.
