Anyone ride these buses? What's the internet service like? I have heard it sometimes doesn't work. Are there "dead zones" (like somewhere between the Springs and Denver) like cell phone coverage has? What type of throughput (Kbps) do people get? Here's a good tool to measure any internet throughput

I thought I've seen FREX buses on non-FREX routes, like serving regular routes in the Springs. If I wasn't hallucinating, would the internet service be available on these non-FREX routes there too?

I rode it for a couple months about two years ago. The internet did not work well for me. And it really messed up my laptop settings for my own home wireless network. FREX is cheaper than driving but it's "if-y". Most days it's packed too tight. And in the winter expect to be on it for at least three hours for a city to city trip.
