Another question: Bloody hell, people, what have your mobile phone
providers been doing for past five years? I'm used to getting 3G
coverage on top of mountains, on the underground, and on an uninhabited
island in the middle of a lake. Looking at coverage maps of the
southwest, it looks like it's going to be a coin toss at best to get any
kind of fast data connection.
