Since so many drivers view cars primarily as mobile phone booths (remember those?), a driving test is unnecessary anyway.

I had to use basic cable internet for 2 weeks earlier this month due to an issue with a problem at my house. It was awful. I had to remotely access to our office servers and the speed and lag time drove me nuts. Since it took forever to download something, I ended up slowing down the access of other people. I endup using my phones hot spot connections. I might complain about my Comcast bill but the amount of time I spent waiting would most likely add up paying for the upgrade.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
