So in the ever on-going wars of my kids circumventing internet safety fences (another story entirely), I have discovered I can use my cellphone as an internet access device. Yes, I know, late to the party. But what surprised me is the performance. My wired provider gives me 20Mbs down / 1.5 Mbps up.
On my cell phone (using it now), I'm getting 15Mbps down / 3+ Mbps up.
That's stunning. Maybe it's 5am and it has no users, I'll have to continue to test. But, that's certainly fast enough for work.
Anyone else care to post their performance #s? I used speedtest.net (I'm on the east coast of USA).
