The harsh reality of suburban broadband

The harsh reality of suburban broadband

Like millions of other Americans and many of New York City's "bridge and tunnel" crowd, I live in the 'burbs. While I do a great deal of travel for my full time job, I am also classified as a "mobile" employee, so I'm not formally attached to an office -- I've been issued a company laptop and they pay my monthly broadband, cellular and phone bills, which are in the form of an AT&T Callvantage VOIP account.
