    The Results Are IN...and it's NOT looking pretty folks....

    I've had some updated testing done in the U.S. in selected markets. Here are some of the results.

    MAJOR U.S. carrier
    Market 100k people.......

    10: 17PM

    Ping times...481ms
    Download speeds.....16kbps
    Upload speeds....236kbps

    call quality...very poor ..intermittent cutting off during conversation
    You tube....wouldn't even start

    Repeat test in that same market on 1/16/2013

    12:35 am

    ping time 309ms
    Download speeds 68 kbps
    upload speeds 123 kbps

    call quality..poor.
    you tube barely operable

    Folks...the walls are crumbling down in some markets. This is caused by larger devices...more of them...more usage and a shift in the way devices are being used. Those results are what one would have seen in 1993 on a dial up modem.

    The results above WILL result in customer defections and a massive increase in calls to carriers tech support lines. who..sadly..will lie to the customer and tell them to reboot their phones and it must be them because everything fine.

    No it's not folks. It's the carrier....and their network which is falling apart and becoming totally inoperable.

    results will vary by market

    Sentiment: Strong Buy
