Same for T-mobile! Which I'm sure sucks though
I'm on T-Mobile. It used to really suck but they've boosted the signal around campus over the past year and I have almost no problems. A bunch of dead zones inside WCC, but I just call over wifi when I'm in those areas.

I've missed absurd amounts of consecutive days of class and, while it can sometimes be a mess to catch up, as long as attendance isn't factored into your grade you should be totally fine. I've definitely missed more than 3 in a row without issue. Even if attendance is factored into your grade, some teachers will accommodate things like this (others have trouble seeing outside the ivory tower).
