We're getting a new package from FIOS. We had gotten a letter that they won't be supporting our Verizon router any more and if we want to keep it, they will charge us like $5/month. Or we can buy a better pre-owned one for $60.

I went to their website to pay the fucking $60, and saw that they were offering an upgrade from our current 25/25Mbps package to a 50/50Mbps for $33 less per month. Nice, but it wouldn't load into my cart. And the $60 routers didn't exist. They were all $100. So I opened a chat with "Stephanie" and "she" offered me a free router and the 50/50 package for $33 less per month if I signed a 2 year deal. Sure, I'll sign up for that. So we got that going for us, which is nice. I'll have to update this thread when we get that new router and faster speed.

Meanwhile, I was on a slow train this morning that stopped for an extra 90 second schedule adjustment at the last 3 stations of my commute. The tunnels in Metro have no AT&T signal, but the stations do. However, it's really frustrating to get anything done on the phone in the 45 seconds or so that the train is stopped in the station. The time is short and the connection is painfully slow.

I give you AT&T 4G, 200 feet underground in Rosslyn:
