Yes. We originally we had residential service and they knew we were spitting 
that too. It was too slow however. If you think about it, all businesses are 
splitting the service amongst all the office workers. When we reach our service 
limits, the speed just slows down.

We have 43 units plus service in the CH. Some residents plus guests routinely 
use the computer in the office, and others work on their laptops frequently in 
the CH. So CH service is important.

Our geek says it is important to have password protection but we have our guest 
passwords posted in the office and guest rooms.

One thing to be aware of and test if you can, is where wireless is blocked. And 
it will be weird.  For those who use someone else’s wireless, it is strange 
which ones are available. I can’t connect to the CH at all but can connect to 
the unit above it. The distance is the same.

Good luck with you most economical options,
