I understand that the wireless service isn't exactly robust either. A 
colleague was telling me today that she went for wireless because she 
was moving around a lot, housewise, just the thing the Tel$tra ads 
say it's good for. She thinks it's pretty bad. Keeps cutting out. 
Tells her she's already connected just after she's been told there 
isn't a connection. Pretty miserable stuff. She's not the brightest 
tool in the box when it comes to technology, so I don't know if the 
troubles are due to something she is or is not doing. Even so, you 
would expect it to at least work and stay connected for what you pay for it.
