Yep - and the sad thing is - the blazing speed is on my AT&T 3/4G cell phone. I'm on 12 GB plan with it now - but will cut it back to 1 or 2 and go with the Verizon Millenicom Mifi. Verizon is slow in my area - and when I put the Hotspot in the Wilson Sleek and the Antena on the window I do get a good boost - but still nothing to right home about... but at I will be able to write home... wherever that is.

FYI Edit - not on the sleek at this Test...

This is what we use... At home, in rv, in car, or in Larrys pocket... For us it has been reliable.. Cheaper than the comcast, and portable...



Diane is the original FTSFM........... (Fast Talking Sliding Finger Mutant, #64) and is retired, duh!

I've been testing it out and it works ok here in the Verizon Neverland.... so should be OK on the road. But I will be surprised if anything ever beats AT&T 4G LTE in its strong zone...

We are at the end of the telephone lines for DSL "high speed" out here in the woods. On a good day it is about 3 mps, on a bad day less than half a meg. When it gets really bad I switch to the 3G/4G Aircard that we use when travelling. Pricey though!

You can still get the Millenicom 3/4 G with Verizon service here in the states for no contract - 20 GB a month and $90 - but ya still have to have a phone lol and they aren't free... but from what I see here in my area, it will be slower that the cell service AT&T is giving me. That will impact use for sure.

So Tina - picture of Today - somewhat less stressful than of THE Day... ???

Well Mutant generation we've lost another one. I can safely say we all have grown up and grown older listening to the announcer John Pardo. Died at 96

Ok so some of us haven grown up, but we did grow older.

Steve we have the Wilson cell signal boost that works pretty good. We added a little better magnet mounted antenna that we simply place on a upside down cake pan in front window. My BIL, the signal guru, said a 10 inch metal base for antenna is minimum and suggest for optimum reception having the antenna directly above the phone cradle.

So if you see me walking around with a cake pan on my head and antenna on top holding a cell booster cradle talking on phone I'm simply trying to get under the umbrella of optimum reception! Nano Nano

I have one of those avatars on a big goose egg plaque that I hang in the front window when we stop. I printed out the avatar and then just used a lamination sheet to cover it. Since it is inside I don't have to worry about the weather.

You don't have to look for a tin plate and antenna to find Tim, just look for someone that just plain looks weird.

It also stops the NSA from listening to your calls, but the voices in your head will still be there...

Yes it happened. Pictures at 11:00....er....when I get them off the camera. Left my SD card reader at home! Damn! Proof will have to wait.

We chose a little town called Agazziz so the Paparazzi would leave us alone. The towns so small, everyone left us alone.
Dinner, laughs and company was great! As mentioned in the Thread Killer thread, it was nice to put faces to the names we've known for a few years.
