My Corner Of the World Officially Gets 3G ...

I posted this on my ATLIBERTYTOSAY website:

Wow! What a surprise! My iPhone internet connection has been very slow over the past few days ... the reason appears to be that they were upgrading the towers for 3G. Yep ... Liberty officially has 3G from AT&T.

Residents of Liberty closer to Norris were already receiving a decent 3G signal - from a 3G Tower in Clemson.

I'm still waiting to upgrade from a measly 10 megs per sec to a 40 meg per sec internet connection, and I was wondering if 3G from, what you had before, is just as big of an improvement?

Since I don't need, therefore don't have a cell phone, I'm not really that sure of what the difference to 3G would be like?

Let's put it this way ... I downloaded an 8MB song this morning from iTunes - it took about 25 seconds. About two weeks ago I downloaded a similar sized song (maybe 8.3 MB) - it took 6 minutes.

Wow, now that is a big, big difference... congrats again!
