Chaska’s municipal Wi-Fi too slow, limited for me

We just moved to Chaska and were excited to try out the citywide wi-fi. They gave us a little antenna to set up in the house, and we’re getting a full strength signal.

But it’s slooooow — I mean crawling. And during peak hours, like this past Sunday night, it’s nearly impossible to even load a YouTube video.

Last night I tried hooking it up to our wireless router so we could get two laptops going at the same time, and it wasn’t having it — kicking off each laptop alternately. Turns out that’s a no-no.

Plus it seemed to block Comcast’s Web site when we tried to research our other options.

So what’s so great about slow-ass municipal wi-fi? It’s slow, limited and possibly neutered.

Screw that. Guess we’re back to the cable monopoly.
