The doghouse: ICE / Kolbi mobile internet

We finally signed up for smart phones and a data plan. Good thing we did - we just moved to a new home, and we'd be stuck without internet access if it wasn't for that.

But the 2 Mbps they promise... It's not there. If you're lucky, you get the speed of a 28.8k modem. YouTube videos? Fuggetaboutit. The only time I've successfully loaded a video was around lunch time, when apparently demand drops as everyone goes to chow.

Quick, someone sue ICE for misleading consumers, advertising speeds 20 times higher than what they provide!

Oh wait - they're government-owned. *sigh*
