Why would one expect an under developed country like US ...

 ;D  Judging by the countries he mentioned,  I suppose Thane was just thinking of the language issue, possibly not realizing that all civilized countries support English at some level.   ;D

More seriously, I had sort of expected to see a much more localized audience.  It is interesting and gratifying to see that the TC community is so geographically diverse, even global.

Do you refer to wireless?

I did have a little bit of a chuckle at the comment on the state of our connectivity, when even here in the north Georgia mountains far away from a big city every 12 year old has his own 3g mobile phone he is constantly playing with.

Great :) Two years ago I was looking for 3G backup to our corporate network for production sites and it was not possible for example at Spanish Fork and so on. There is development :)

A friend of my commented his trip to US that 'Guys, I was driving at West Coast and for a day there were no reception on car radion, not FM only but even on MW or LW. Even not a single AM broadcast, only satellite." This is about coverage :)

I'm not negative, just explaining how big your country and how areas can differe.

I meant it all in good humor, like I knew your statement was.  And that your point was that the US is not the center of the TC universe, which is true.

I do find it funny that kids nowadays are carrying electronics that 15 years ago only executives owned and even then did not have the capabilities that the devices do now. 

And there certainly is not uninterrupted service here in the mountains, that is for sure. In fact, hardly any radio reception, but analog radio is so '80s anyway. :)

I live just 30 miles from the center of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and I get no broadcast televis1on reception at all.  I don't miss it a bit and I think my children are better off this way, but it does illustrate the way coverage can be spotty.

When I first moved out of home (20 or so years ago) I did not have the money for a TV, and discovered to my amazement, that the radio was a great alternative. And not the commercial stations either, I would put it on classical or jazz instrumental stations and read books about history or some fiction. It was a great and peacful time, then my parents came round to visit + drop off a TV and i've been zombiefied ever since....
I often remember the peace but can't seem to throw the TV out.
Live long and prosper.
