Uhg, I used this about 5 years ago to work from home, highest teir service and it sucked. it was slow (although fast compared to dial up it's true) Down was slow up was even slower. and if it snowed or rained heavily or a deer or dog walked in front of the dish I lost signal. I always worried about the microwave transmission warnings on the thing to. I had a fence about 2 feet from the dish to keep critters from cooking themselves. probably paranoid but it's what they recomended at the time.
