Vegas Is Too Slow

I still have an office in Las Vegas which I’m working on closing down. One reason, besides the fact that I moved, is the pathetic broadband speed, similar to that of my last apartment there, which is more than 200x slower than the fiber connection in my new apartment near Salt Lake City.

I had high-tech hopes for Vegas when I moved there seven years ago, and I think there was a missed remote-work-here opportunity during the pandemic, but really their only infrastructure upgrade has been letting Elon Musk build more Tesla tunnels.
