Life on throttled data
#1
My 5 gig T-mobile hotspot has unlimited streaming on approved services but when a certain neighbor FROM CANADA accidentally connects to it, he drains the usable 5 gigs pretty quickly.

Damn Canadians

Anywho I have been trying to up load a you tube video and none of the services have had good up load speeds where I am. I was trying my Sprint hotspot but it kept dropping the up load around 50%. I was about to drive into town for a better signal but decided to try it on the throttled T-Mobile hotspot. I knew I could watch you tube simply by starting a video and then pausing it until it downloaded enough that I could start watching it, at least the up load could take as long as it needed.

It took 6 hours for a 11 minute video but sometime around 1 AM it finished and I was able to get it published.

It gave me a chance to see what is possible on throttled data with a average speed of 256k. Everyone worries so much about POSSIBLY being throttled IF they are over 22 gigs and IF they are on a congested tower. The reality is that you can still do a lot IF you just CALM DOWN and have some freaking PATIENCE.

The video is about the installation of my A/C into the Microwave cabinet.
