mobile broadband

Emma and I are catsitting this week for Jacob and Klaus and we’re spending time in their kolonihavehus with their two babies Oscar and Mivsen.

One of the perks is that we get to test out Klaus’ neat 3g service from 3. Emma and I both brought our laptops but thanks to the sweet little feature in osx called internet connection sharing we can both be online independently. The speed is quite decent also. I ran a speedtest at speedtest.net and the results are seen below:

At my work we are seeing a rapidly increasing interest in mobile broadband as well, but it’s still mostly seen as a supplement to bring with you when you’re away from home.

Mobile tech superman James Kendrick started a discussion over on jkontherun about whether or not mobile broadband would be enough to cover day to day needs. My answer based on three days of usage here is a resounding no with the caveat that it could certainly do in a pinch. But I do miss our 10 Mbit line at home right about now.
