There is worse
I moved from blighty to the back end of nowhere in Ireland.
Now, while the majority of Ireland has quite good ADSL, with 20 Mb/s being a regular occurrence, I thought I'd be able to at least get 1 Mb/s.
Mobile connections are also flaky at the top of the valley I live in, so what was I left with?
Satellite, that's what. The cap is minimal (26 GB), the ping rate is horrendous (700-900ms) and the price is offensive. But that's what I have to put up with to live in the area I want to.
As an IT professional this initially made me weep, but I have come to embrace the consistent speed it provides (18 Mb/s).
To quote the article though: "Roll on 4G. It must be better, mustn't it?"
