said by IHateNC :You should be able to get EVDO from sprint/verizon just about anywhere.. you might check into that.. though there are caps and higher ping times.. (the price maybe lower) the LTE deployments going on the next few years may also give you some new
The slowest form of broadband wasn't even offered in my area, outskirts of hickory, until about 5 years ago when we had Light Leap. About 3 years ago Embarq finally offered broadband to us. We were forced to purchase the bundle since we can't get Cable here and the prices were so high without bundling.
Even though the tech that checked my line said we can get a 3 MB connection Century Link will not offer it to us and refuses to upgrade our connection even though our address is listed right on their web page as qualifying for it. So I'm stuck with 768 which actually is around 600 as the download speeds are always 60Kbps.
This bill has made it so that the only other option I have is to go back to Light Leap and pay $99 per month just for 1.5MB internet.
