Meet Phil. Phil is from Cornwall in the UK. Phil is a long time MobileTechRoundup listener and jkOTR reader. Phil has given us quite a few mobile tech story tips lately (which we appreciate!) and I think I know why. In fact, I’m wondering why Phil didn’t tip us off to THIS story since I think it’s in his relative backyard.
The Goonhilly satellite station in Cornwall, just got an upgrade in a big way. Turns out that this internet cafe is now hooked up to BT’s network where users can get download speeds of up to 100 Mbps! I’ve often thought that my download speeds at Starbucks are that fast, but I’m thinking the Triple Grande Latte with extra sugar might have something to do with that. The way I see it, Phil can find those news stories and send ‘em to us faster than most folks these days. Then again, with a station name of "Goonhilly", I’m starting to understand why he kept "mum" on this particular one. Just kidding, Phil! Cheers!!
