    Like I said, welcome to small town Iowa..........ok, so now I won't complain so much about mine.

    My cousin lives just north of coralville (solon address) and he has south slope and seems to like it. With those download/upload speeds for US Cellular that could be a good option. But once again as others have mentioned, I'd be nervous about the data cap.

    just looked at my South Slope bill, $55 a month + tax. Used to be $61 with tax now it has crept up to $67. called them to ask why, they say its a usf tax you have to pay if you don't have a landline. they have to send that tax money out to the FCC usf fund for rural expansion.

    Now switching subjects a bit but I wanted to test my AT&T connection vs my internet. Im throttled bad on upload, you can watch the gauge drop as it manages the upload. However download, pegs the gauge. (Nokia Lumia 920 4g LTE)

    In comparison my last speed test on my wifi was 18 down, 1.9 up.

    wow, you and colton turned your phone wifi off when you did the phone test didn't you? i could see campus or business wifi pulling those numbers but i didn't know 4g could go that fast

    I'm considering T-mobile, unlimited 4G with 2.5GB of tethering included. At $70 a month I think it would be worth the switch and I think they have a promotion to pay cancellation fees going on right now but that may be just for families.

    -_- Fuck you all! Guess I'm now the slowest at another thing on here. Bet I'm the fastest through deep mud/water though. ^_^

    WTF are you guys doing that you need those speeds for? my piddly ass 14M is more than sufficient for my use. mainly forums, netflix, and downloading music...

    Yeah just 4G. My WiFi is only 18Mbs I ran the test yesterday after colton did and got that number. The previous times I did a few months ago I was hitting mid 40Mbs.
