Wireless ISP

What is the fastest speed any wireless ISP can provide? What is the farthest distance wireless Internet broadcast to? Does speed drop off due to distance?

Alarm Clock

HDD churns, Processor runs at 100% and swap is activated after Alarm Clock runs it's alarm (a song). This started happening after the last several mint updates. Swap is usually at 0% otherwise.
