You might expect that in the heart of the Silicon Valley high speed internet would be a given, but that is not necessarily the case. Speed Matters blogger Roger Osburne recently heard from CWA member Yonah Diamond. The Good News is he got great speed of 15 mb. The Bad News is he was sitting in a conference room at an AT&T Data Center and not at home.
