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.

You can't connect via a 3G aircard?

Don't know about him, but I can't.  Virtually no cell service at my house.

No cell phone service at my place. We do have running water and flushable toilettes.  ;)

I had high speed 7 years ago when I lived in town, plus I have cable modem at the brewery and I worked in an office with high speed access up until 2 years ago. I did fall off the turnip truck but it's been a while.  :P

Glad to know you've rejoined modern society. ;D

I've had broadband for 13 years now. Seriously considering the 4g LTE service and ditching the cable modem and wifi router.
