My situation is that I am a college student living in an apartment complex using AT&T internet (included). Since everyone in the complex is on the same line, even if I am connected to the ethernet directly from the wall, the internet either doesn't work half of the time or it is VERY slow. As a student alone this is a big issue for studying, but I also run a web business which makes this an even bigger issue.
I tried contacting AT&T to see if I could get my own dedicated line, but the apartment complex apparently won't allow it for some reason. Does anyone know of anything I could try to help improve the situation without paying $60+/mo to get wireless 3G (which would be ridiculous to have to use at my desk).
