3G Card and Sufficient Rurality

(Originally posted 2007-02-24.)

I’m writing this in the back of a taxi – on my way to Heathrow. (A 3G card for my Thinkpad was waiting for me when I got home yesterday.)

My conclusion is that we live somewhere “sufficiently rural” as I’ve lost signal once. (That was between us and Henley.) Any more than that and I’d think we lived in the sticks. As it is to actually lose the signal at all is a reassurance that we don’t live anywhere urban(e). šŸ™‚

And, no, I wouldn’t really mind if this “test drive” utterly failed: I only really need the card in places where the likelihood of a signal is strong anyway – such as airports and on trains.
