This. That little coffee shop's probably got AT&T 1.5-3Mbit DSL tops connected to a Linksys router.

This is as good as it gets for my area. I don't qualify for DSL:

With free wi-fi as part of the camping fee I really cannot complain.

Not sure I would accept that speed at home in today's world.

Come on, don't be that obnoxious.
You obviously come from the outlier region, what you get is nowhere near standard for anywhere in the US.
