At least... I guess... according to Verizon! ... and I thought I rode a Yamaha. ;)
When Mark voiced his feelings about the air card Thing to me, when we crossed trails in Catalina, Arizona several weeks ago... it was like an echo of thoughts I'd been having...
... but since then my own internet slow down has only gotten worse... and I really started paying attention.
Last night... I had a flash for about 60 seconds of 2885 kbps... only to have it fall to ZERO, 10, 235... 45kbps... arrrrrggggghhhhh! This morning 1856 for a few seconds... and then 0, 1.24, 22.58, Lovely... and all... with Five bars of signal.
So... I started digging a little bit and found, going back a year and more, that what's goin' on ain't a surprise to anybody but us! :) I found this article and linked to it... this one...
Bottom line I was right... I'm so proud! ;) ... the solution is gonna be High Dollar and it's gonna take a while.
You and me are the problem, NOT, AT&T or Verizon. We're buying data munching gizmos faster than the Providers can build the systems to feed 'em. We're getting frustrated and they're losing ground.
It's gonna get worse, before it gets better... Now... for most folks it's only an inconvenience... but me? I've kinda painted myself into a box... again! :) Wow! Has THAT put a look of surprise on this Ol' Busters face! :-o
My Precious Mobile Internet has allowed, to my great Joy, a heavy part of my income to be made while I live The Gypsy life I have hungered for and chased my entire life. Dealing with the frustrations of finding access... so I can do my "Work"... isn't just something I can take or leave... if I leave it... I don't eat... and the dream goes - KERSPLATT!
I have no option but to hunt up, work out, build up, a solution... or a balance... that doesn't leave me kicking pigs.... and spewing blue smoke!
Right at this moment, I've no idea really which way to go. I know there's an answer... There's a trail to follow... I just have to find it.
Different Day... New Potholes ;)
