So I was wrong. I can see that now.
In a previous post, I had declared that Wi-tribe which I was using at the time sucked a bit. Thought Clouds - The Digital Bender: Why Wi-Tribe may not be your best bet
I can see now after nearly two months of using UMAX that Wi-Tribe, was BRILLIANT. And that it is UMAX that sucks.
With the exception of a few good sales people, and one good engineer. I have had no pleasant experience with UMAX whatsoever.
The connection was very unreliable, the signal often bad, speed never reached 1mbps except in one isolated moment, support is reluctant and rigid.
Dear Wi-Tribe, I apologize, I made a mistake. I love you and I'm coming back to you.
