As long as YOU are ok with paying that much for that little service…..

Yep, not an issue. We can only use AT&T part of the time, or Verizon part of the time... and pay for those as well. Don't really see how that is any different. We've spent weeks to months in areas that we couldn't get decent signal with one or the other.

Between all three, and good equipment, we have pretty good Internet anywhere we go. Since I require Internet to keep paychecks coming in... I don't mind spending a fair bit of money on it.

Exactly, if I'm getting $700 a day on my gig while out their in the boondocks, paying for it at $100 a month even if I only use it twice or 7 times is a good ROI.

Didn't see that there were actually five cats on the dish.


In some countries, this is just dinner and not at all unusual.

How do you know if you are in an open cell? do you just fire it up and test? Tesla doesn't care that the dish is roaming?

You go into the web portal and attempt to set a new service location. It will accept it if it's an open cell, or deny it if not.

I wish I can tell you more.


It's in the bun with too much sweet sauce on the former.

And I was totally too drunk on the latter.[emoticon]

Boa, that one really taste like chicken. But then it's last meal was chicken.

Notice how all this technology (being ‘chipped’ soon to follow…) has become a ‘one way tunnel’ - one can go in, but once in know that you can’t get out…Musk also has raised this future concern…
