I know, pretty bad huh! That's why in Japan they STREAM live TV, not this half backed cr$p you get like with MLB, but full TV.
We are YEARS behind that - not sure how soon 4.5 will make it but it would be nice to see 3G work where advertised - I get 1.3 -1.6MB per second, on iphone, aound 700K, not 70K, but 700K or 7000kps.
Still kills me that some people still don't get it, like a friend of mine thought his 1.5Meg speed was faster than my 1.2MB from cable.
DSL/CABLE always advertise WRONG in my opinion, like mine they calll either a 10Mb ot 16MG line, his, a 1.5Mb which all translate to 1200K to his being 150K.
Meanwhile in some places (hospital in Boston, 30MEG per second), and other countries kick our butts then again, they have been NON LAND LINES for years whereas we are just starting to get to that point.
With regard to speeds...
I like this....
When done click on summary, it shows me faster than 92% of all connections, but our country (US) at only 88% so assume this 6MB per second is up there.
