    So before paying the money for mywi, I had a question. Does signal strength matter when I go to connect my laptop? I don't get the best signal at my house, so that's why I am curious.

    Yes, if you are only getting 1 or 2 bars, when you tether, it's going to be a lot slower than if you are somewhere with better signal strength.

    Ok, so if I usually on get one or two bars of edge it probably isn't worth it then? I'm only curious because we are still waiting for the new Internet company to be set up in our area and it would be nice to use my laptop again lol

    Thanks for the reply. I'll just go ahead and wait until our new Internet is ready then. No sense in paying the $10 for something I won't really be able to use.
