Is there no 3G or 4G service available? Here with 3G I get average of 7mbits.

Life is like a penny, you can spend it on what you like, but you can ONLY spend it once.

And I'm pissed off at paying 29.90 euros for our 10/10 connection. 13.gif My son has a 100mbps for 19. puke.gif

So I guess it's all relative.

Ouch! The advantage of London is a plentiful supply of Free wifi and 3G "Hotspots" available.

We have them BUT the FCC lets the cell companies advertise "unlimited data time" but when you go over a certain amount per month they turn your speed down. The "hot spot" devices are expensive and don't work as advertsed.

I told you: "You may be homeless but your internet speed will always be faster than mine."

We get 2gigs/mnth for $56. Good for maybe two movies. Over use is about $100/gig. Only reason I have hi speed is becaus the gov installed relay towers for every native reserve and I have line-of-site.
