thinglets: A Network Saga in Nottawasaga

I'm at a hotel/resort in Nottawasaga, Ontario. Never heard of it? Neither had I. (map below)

And I don't have much to say except to ask this: why the hell am I getting better download speeds over wi-fi in my end-of-wing hotel room than I get via cable at home. I call your attention to number beside the small, green circle checkmark at the bottom of the above picture. That's right 1.1MB PER SECOND!

Apologies to bandwidth conservators, but I'm taking this opportunity to download this past year's SXSW free music packages to my laptop.

Something's rotten in the state of my ISP. Can I just move in here?
