    The Worst Thing About Oktoberfest: O2

    Phoronix: The Worst Thing About Oktoberfest: O2

    The worst problem with Munich's Oktoberfest is not related to the beer or drinking too much of it (at least not from my perspective, with being able to properly and responsibly consume Augustiner), but rather having to deal with O2 Germany, the European tele-communications company...

    in my experience:
    Vodafone? Works great
    T-Mobile? Works but not as great as Vodafone.
    O2? Who in hell deals with their crap!?
    Expensive, bad - do you need more arguments?

    That tends to happen at crowded events. I went to Washington DC once for an event, and I was probably the only person there with AT&T because everyone else had Verizon and couldn't even get a voice/sms connection let alone 3g, and then there was me with 5 bars the whole day.

    try to get a private living room over "couch-surfing" then you maybe get A-DSL/A-DSL2/VDSL or Kabel with 6mbps up to 100mbps.

    but in public room and streets Germany is the INTERNET hell.

    Most networks struggle in Edinburgh during festival time, I also think your dongle should work under linux using network-manager in conjunction with modem-manager, I've got a few lying round the house including the old PCMCIA cards too

    E-Plus: Shit network, but cheap
    O2: average network, average price
    T-Mobile & Vodafone: good networks, expensive

    That's how we roll in Germany. I hear it's a lot worse in the USA (with Verizon/Sprint/T-Mobile/AT&T).
