    No Internet

    Well I'm gona be gone from here for awhile as I can't get a high speed internet until the Dish Network gets set up some time around the 1st of March. I dont want to get locked in to a Dial up connection for a year so will just have to wait. Will be using McDonalds wifi when I can.

    Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away and you have their shoes.

    Now that's a serious bummer! Have you checked the other satellite providers?

    Well that sucks for sure!

    I'm sure you'll find something to do with all that free time you will have, when you do get a net connection, we expect to see some project pics

    Have you checked out these guys?

    http://www.tahighspeed.com/coverage.php


    Their rates look a little high to me.

    I've had satellite before, and I can tell you, it can be 'ok' but the bandwidth caps and the latency involved in sending the signal to outer space and back is a little daunting. I'm on terrestrial wireless now, and I can tell you it's way better.

    Have you looked into Hughes Net? Don't know anything about them, but their advertising say anywhere where there's southern exposure... Rates may be higher though.

    My parents taught me to respect my elders, but it's getting harder and harder to find any.
    If you go looking for trouble, it will usually find you.

    I have looked at them but are high set up and slow speed the guy the is the Dish Dealer is using it and said I could set in his yard and use his wifi if I want but he is going to switch to the Dish system when its up as it is a LOT faster.

    I think the Dish network has bought them out and that is what the new system is replacing.
