Having spent years in the business, that's not exactly how it works. Fiber is there for capacity; lots and lots of circuits, but no one transmission is 'light speed'. And not all connections to a Mobile Switching Office is on fiber anyway.

But it's not that important here. Be happy to bore you to tears in real life some day and 'splain how cell service works..........if they haven't drastically changed it in last 3 years!!

Close enough to let them know they have the band width to cover the calls!

Have Verizon cell phone and hot spot. It worked fine, got good 4G signal at Goshen in 2014.

Now about Tuesday........... is that 12:01 on Tuesday or another more specific time on Tuesday???? "Sometime" is kind of a vague measurement.

It could be less than 1 & 1/2 hours away. Get your finger on the button. The countdown starts now -85 minutes.

I have to set my clock so I can get up in 55 minutes & have my finger on the button. See you all in Goshen.
