5.5 hours on the phone

I am so you know how hard it is to order T1 services for a convention function when you're just told it's needed two weeks from the start of the convention?

I want to hit someone.

So far I've talked to: Verizon convention center rep, multiple Verizon commercial reps, our company's Sprint rep, Verizon federal rep, exhibits services company, multiple convention center management company reps, several convention center management company corporate HQ reps, actually, I ended up with a very busy spreadsheet to keep up with all the people, scenarios, options, dead ends (lots of dead ends), possibilities (not many left).

Anyone know much about wireless high speed Internet access? I'm beginning to think the hard-wired option ain't gonna happen.

Did you know that Verizon has a 1 year minimum contract, even if you just want a line for a week? (50% cancellation penalty). Such a racket.
