Upload Files Fast with CoffeeShop

I had about 4GB of data to upload today for several projects. My DSL at home, while reliable, is only 256k upstream. After hours of waiting, I loaded the files onto my laptop and went to Borders Books. I guessed that T-mobile had installed an actual T1 line and I was right. Full 1.5Mbps uplink, so I was able to finish all of my uploads in about 2.5 hours.

Of course, T-mobile’s service isn’t free, but it was a very clean connection and got my work done a lot faster. I only wish I didn’t waste half a day before I drove down and tried it.

Next time, I’ll test BitTorrent and some other peer-to-peer applications.
