Lessons From The Road: Free 'hi-speed' Internet
Posted 04 September 2012 - 11:26 AM
"35Mbps broadband" bastard, the best i can get is 15 here
I can get more than the 15 I currently have, I just can't justify the cost. We don't bundle, just have internet and we pay over $60/month for it here in the NW. The problem we have is that Comcast's only competition is a DSL provider, and they know it.

You a right on about what happens on the road! I started working from the road in 2005 it was a hit and miss to find a hotel that even had any Internet and about half the time it was a lie! To this day when I check in I do not believe the desk when they say their Internet is working. When it wasn't working I would end up talking to "tech support" and they would try to walk me through it. I finally figured out that it wasn't my lap top it was always on their end. I got to the point that I would help them trouble shoot through their issues. So what you found happening now is a big improvement. Almost every hotel has Wi Fi and it is almost always up! Yeah sometimes it gets slow and it not as fast. It's better than using the personal hot spot and better than having none. When I find my self on the road and all my attempts to get online to work fail or it's so slow it becomes pointless to try, I take the day off and go explore. This works out pretty good if you happen to be somewhere like Glacier, Yellowstone or the Oregon Coast! So some is better than none and none can be a good thing too!
