Triatel back from the dead?
Suddenly on a cool Saturday night, my Triatel wireless internet in Carnikava came back to normal life (doing as high as 450 kbps, depending on what speedtest tool one used). It had been running sporadically at less that GPRS speed, when it was running at all, for almost a week. This failure of Triatel (the company says the net was overloaded, so much demand for the service) also led to an impulse purchase of a Nokia N80, so that I would have something to use for EDGE access with the Triatel down. I think I would have bought the N80 anyway, since I was offered an excellent deal, significantly below retail.
The N80 is a bit of a hassle to use with my Apple Powerbook G4, it managed to crash Mac OSX (using Nokia Music Manager for Mac, designed for the N91 but supposed to work with the N80).
