Re: That's the Price of Living In the Middle of Nowhere

Hell... Nacogdoches is a college town, not quite as middle of nowhere as this makes it sound.

If you live within the city area, you have DSL/Cable like everyone else (I did when I lived there). Outside of town, it is true, you do not have access to high speed internet. It is rural in the south and east sense of rural - not in the West sense of rural. There's no way, for example, to get lost for days in East TX unless you're dumb. Keeping going in a straight line and you'll find somebody somewhere. It's a crowded rural.

That said, yeah, dialup is probably best. Cingular offers very good cell phone coverage of the area - even the rural bits - but cell internet isn't going to be on the new data networks, so it'll be no faster than a telephone.
