Value for money:
When me moved to "the country", we went through the Qwest website for DSL and their website said high speed DSL was available at our address. When we tried to order, they said, "sorry, not available in your area". Same with Comcast, the local cable monopoly. Our new neighbors had SkyBeam and were happy with them. The service is "point-to-point" wireless using a dish similar to DirecTV. We have direct line-of-sight to the tower about 7 miles away so the signal is awesome, even when it rains or snows. So far only a couple of minor outages in 6 months, nothing for more than 1 hour and that was due to power issues at the tower. So far I'm very happy with the service. 5Mbps down/1Mbps up for $41 a month is WAY better than satellite internet.
