    He'd be talking about ATT DSL customers that live more than a mile from the
    CO....(c;

    If he thinks he's gonna get 1.4Mbps on PCS 2 miles from the tower in a city
    full of competing sellphones, he's a real dreamer! He might get 1.4Mbps if
    there's no other customers attached in tabletop-flat open country with no
    multipath reflections.....not in the canyons of downtown Chicago/NYC or
    Atlanta.

    I wonder how fast it will be in Lane or Greeleyville or Kingstree, SC, I
    was getting 800Kbps on Alltel EVDO today? Never mind....only Columbia, the
    capital, and Myrtle Beach will get 3G. Even the billionaires on Hilton
    Head, Kiawah and Isle of Palms won't.

    Wow! You ARE ignorant! Columbia, Myrtle Beach and Charleston are in
    SOUTH Carolina.

    No, we have had 3G or more for years. ATT/Cingular, or whatever
    they're calling the company this week, are the ones behind. Verizon
    had their new 700 Mhz digital TV online. Alltel sells MobiTV but the
    picture's too small on my tiny sellphone. I'm trying to get ATT to
    get off their asses and port the PC TV service to Linux (MobiTV, too)
    so I can buy it for the Linux tablet.

    I'm having a late breakfast at a local diner with free wifi from the
    bar next door typing this on rdesktop to the XP box on Xnews. I can
    type faster on wifi than sellular and the letters don't skip.

    Well, you need to get out more and see the country while you still
    can. We're not the backwater you think.....(c
