• Away from Keyboard Until August 8th



    No new briefings or threads of the week from yours truly for the next two weeks, due to a summer road trip across Atlantic Canada including, I hope, a pilgrimmage to Signal Hill, where the world's first transatlantic wireless transmission was received in 1901.

    Business as usual should resume on Monday, August 8th. Happy Simcoe Day to my fellow Torontonians!

    Thanks. Looks like it is connecting to 5GHz. There is an AP in the room she uses as her office, so I wouldn't think wi-fi signal would be part of the problem.

    Visible was one of the MVNOs I would have considered trying.

    I haven't really been following cell tech since the early LTE days so I don't know what to look for on the towers, but if I get a chance, I will get some pictures of my local tower's panels for you.
