    I made an anecdotal comment do I get graded on it?

    If you must know, several years ago I was traveling around
    central Indiana on business. The people I was with were
    business professionals who live in the area so I assume that
    they were savvy about cellular service in the region. They
    made that comment.

    It was in the rural area between Monticello, Lafayette and
    Logansport. The signal wasn't great but at least I could
    make and receive calls.

    Someone I was working with in rural Illinois west of Chicago
    made a similar comment last fall. He currently uses T-Mobile
    but has tried all of the major carriers.

    There, happy!

    My rant was about the declining quality of AT&T's service!
    If you re-read my original message I stated that I'm
    considering switching to Verizon!

    Foreyes has a special running on glasses!
