2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

A San Francisco cable car holds 60 people. This blog was viewed about 3,300 times in 2011. If it were a cable car, it would take about 55 trips to carry that many people.

AT&T’s 3G network is terrible in Hudson Ohio

So AT&T’s wireless 3G network is terrible in Hudson, Ohio.  Their Service is terrible and the support to solve the problem is terrible.   They supposedly have towers going in before EOY to give better coverage but from North of 303/91 to Twinsburg border  and from 303/91 to Hudson High School it plain sucks.  Whether you sit at the HCC or at Downtown 140 or North End Market you hear the curses of people getting their service dropped or the Edge Network going Jacko on you…

So how can AT&T let this happen.  With the economic wealth in this area their opportunity of loosing customers goes up each day.   With hundreds of students at Hudson Highschool who may have iphones and the students at WRA / Wester Reserve Academy they better improve their service.  Put in some temporary repeaters AT&T…..Get Smart..

Hopefully this changes but they just lost out on a potential of 15 new accounts and just lost 2 existing ones.

It doesn’t matter if you have a blackberry or an iphone the network just doesn’t peform
