On Bandwidth

While I was in Vegas for MIX, I used my phone's built-in wifi tethering rather than pay the hotel $15/day for shitty wifi. Surprised by how good it was, I posted something to that effect on Facebook:

"quot;Is is a bad thing that the 3G I'm getting by using my Nexus S as a hotspot seems faster than my wired internet at home?"

Once I got back home, my internet was being difficult so I decided to conduct an experiment:

0.65 Mbps 1.58 Mbps

Can you guess which one's my wired internet connection? That's right: The slow one. So yeah, this is obviously not okay and I'm going to have to do some digging.
