Been there, dunn that--NEVER AGAIN
I have so much useless junk laying around from my sattellite days. I will say, I go back a ways with hose net, but will never move to a bumfuk area again without knowing broadband options first. The best so called broadband I tryed first, was the early direcpc days of a piggy back phoneline for up an the dish just for download.
But I couldent be happy with that, so I wasted money two more times for so-called 2-way systems that were really just more junk. I had just fell for those cute little blue lights, when El-crappia had just upgradded the cable system. Was worried about walkin because those cute little bluelights were a 2 year commitment. Well lets just say I walked and was never charged any termination fee. I am now part of the RR program thanks to corportate buyout and the evil elcrapia-CEO. I really want to thank that dufus for embezeling that money to build his mansion and neglecting to build out the rual cable-systems. It gave me time to explore all the ins and outs of bouncing a signal 23k miles. Which is a joke for average joe. The need to knows and goverment do have access to real connections from sattellites that still suck too. Overselling sattelite capacity has been a big buzz, and the WAR/millitary usuage is probally a bigger burdin on that bird than anybody realizes.
Whats wrong with the economic system....
