We are staying in a Residence Inn for a while, and they claim to have high-speed internet in each room. They are accomplishing this by making a 802.11b network available to all the rooms.
Is there a minimum definition of what can be considered high-speed internet connection? This network connection is pretty slow. The ping times from here to google.com, are in the 1000 - 2000 ms range, which is pretty poor.
The network is managed by the GoldenTree Asset Management company. It looks like they are running a proxy server and this is probably causing the delay. For web traffic they are running squid.
