57th 12 Hours of Sebring Data Problems

AT&Ts data network at Sebring seemed overwhelmed. Most of the time our phones were on GSM and even when EDGE appeared, there was zero connectivity. For most of the week we could not load timing and scoring and our messages were often delayed and/or rejected. Forget getting online to upload images. Our AT&T laptop connect card refused to join the network. Once, for a few minutes on Friday, we were able to use Sebring Airport’s free wi-fi, but that crashed immediately and never came back.

I suppose that they could argue that there is little point in building an infrastructure capable of sustaining the hordes of fans who are there only 5 days out of the year. All I know is that we were irked and will look for alternatives to their system.

We are back home with a proper connection and I will try to get some images from the race online tonight.
