    7Mbps? :wtf: Shit... I thought I lived rural-ish... I'm doing 100+

    Definitely don't do any algo stuff on that... what's the latency? Ping?

  4. What kind of ping, download and upload speeds are you getting ?

    I have traded ES off iPhone and tethered to laptop over the years but prefer high speed cable isp and have had a good experience. Do you have a back up cell service if your current one goes down ? I've compared my primary cable isp to cellular performance on the dom but can't tell much difference in quote updating or execution but there is a cell tower within 1000 ft of my residence and my cellular speed is frequently 80-120 mb/s


    Get the Speedtest app and see what results you are getting.

    Last day of the vacation so it is not that important anymore. I actually got 11 Mbps download speeds in the rental. Yes, I had back up, the public library. :)

    (for comparison, the library's speed is only 3 Mbps)
