Here at my home, the fastest wired internet speed we can get is 10mbit ADSL over phone wire, from Bell Sympatico. Despite being in the Greater Toronto Area, fiber optic lines haven't reached my neighbourhood yet. And we really only get about 6-8mbit of that 10.
However, I just performed a few speed tests on my phone's 4G/LTE connection (I don't really know what it's called, or what any of those 3G/4G/LTE terms really mean, so heretofore I'll refer to it as "radio"), and I can sustain 50mbit for a 200 megabyte file, peaking at around 75mbit.
So we're now at the point where, at my particular location, the wireless internet connection is faster than the wired connection. I'm wondering if it wouldn't make sense to just completely stop paying for wired ADSL, and just buy one of those radio USB sticks that Bell sells, and plug it into my router (which explicitly states being compatible with those radio USB sticks), and use THAT as my main internet source. Has anyone ever done this before? I haven't done the end-bill cost comparison of the two services, but aside from the price difference, would this be a good idea?
