A short stretch of Tester Steven Crews' long drive through the desert
This video features CPUC's own mobile tester Steve Crews driving on Lanfair Road between the town of Goffs and... absolutely nothing? It was the road to nowhere. Well, technically for our purposes it was between Points 2117 and 2040. And what speed of broadband can we find at these locations? At point 2117, the Verizon netbook averaged 13 Mbps downstream. The other providers were not even close. At point 2040, the Verizon phone averaged 14 Mbps downstream and was far and away the fastest provider.
