Ricochet May be Returning to a Market Near You

Following yesterday’s announcement of active Ricochet service in San Diego, just out of curiosity, this morning I slipped in my old merlin into my PowerBook and tried the standard ‘3333’ dial sequence. I’m in Orange County, CA but definitely too far away to hit any San Diego towers.

However, to my surprise, I connected. It was very “faint” I think since I couldn’t move around without disconnecting, and super slow/latent, but The PowerPage did start to come up. I’m sure it’s in the testing phase.

I let Ricochet know this and asked for a service ETA in my area but got the standard “We do not currently provide service in Orange County nor do not have a time frame…check our Web site for updates.”

If you have a Ricochet modem you might want to give it a try.
