Roadrunner.........DSL..............<sigh> Oh I WISH!
We are in the STICKS of Upstate NY
I finally got sick to death of waiting for a connection, getting booted and the constant busy signals.
I coughed up a pretty penny for satellite internet.
Before I did, I read a lot of different message boards and made sure of what I was getting into. Since the initial set-up, I have been very happy with my service. I have not had the major issues I read about, and with this company, I still have a back-up dial-up service, in case of satellite outage. And only have to use it on the worst of stormy weather <which I unplug everything anyway, so no problem>.
The worst part?
69.95 a month
And, even with a hub, NIC card, I cannot get our other 2 computers set up to access through this...........so will wind up dishing out even more to get that set up working.
But, all in all, I LOVE downloading in seconds/minutes vs. minutes-hours before. And the webpages come up MUCH faster, no long waits for pix and/or music to load.
