The BING streetmap is fuzzy. It doesn't produce a nice crisp background. Regardless of the scale or pdf dpi, the streetmap background doesn't improve (the road labels are particularly bad). Reprojecting on the fly or using it in its default coordinate system doesn't make a difference.

I have attached a sample. It is particularly noticeable when printed.
Any help would be appreciated because it is such a quick and easy way to make a vicinity map.
