It’s nice to have a really, really fast WiFi connection during a conference. In my hotel room, there’s no WiFi, and they want $$ to use the wired broadband connection, so I’ve been using my EVDO phones.
But here on the Harvard Campus, the WiFi is free, and really fast. I just measured about 13Mbps down and 6Mbps up – almost as fast in download as my fiber connection at home, and three times faster for uploads. Nice. 🙂
