My local IHOP finally managed to get Wifi internet access in the restaurant.

For reasons unknown to me, it's a Meraki box, backhauled *over T-mobile*.

That's just as unpleasant as you'd think it would be, And More!

Both the wifi and 3G (yes, 3G) boxes lock up on a fairly regular basis, 
requiring a power cycle, which, generally, they'll only do because I've
been eating there for 20 years, and they trust me when I ask them to.

I can't say whether this provides any illumination on the rest of their
product line, but...
