... a lot of people in the UK can't even get a decent connection, even thought they have to pay for it. So why do criminals get it free anyway.

Well first you need to compromise a machine. Game over there and then, let alone starting to re-flash BOIS or whatever - this is just another *thing* that can be changed once you own the machine. No big surprise there.
