Welcome to the North Side

Just moved offices from the South side of my building where I got no WiMax signal whatsoever to an office on the North Side. I speculated one of the benefits was I would get a signal. I assumed this based on Clear's coverage map showing a WiMAX tower pretty close to the building:

Looking out my window I see:

So I ran Speedtest on my Epic:

Maybe not the best numbers in the world, but since I was literally getting no signal on the other side of the building, that's quite an improvement.


  1. You have an office with a window? That is so cool.

  2. I've been more fortunate then most. However, most of our buildings are not cube farms (We do have some) and as such you typically have a 50/50 chance at a Window office. Heck, in my entire (near 12-year career) here I think I've had a window office 10 of those years. Only 1 assignment did I not have a window office... and it wasn't when I was a newhire... it was an assignment from about 4 years ago.
