Re: [Exede] Exede and DSL

Go live in rural America...city folks ain't got standing on how DSL works out here.

AT&T does not fix it, no upgraded DSL equipment in smaller cities...if it works, it works.

Larger companies, like they did years ago with telephone industry, went after the big bucks. They by-passed the smaller communities, and left them to the "independents."

Money, picking the low hanging fruit in larger cities.

That's why ViaSat and Hughes plan on selling to those with inferior quality DSL.

Inferior quality DSL it exists...go ahead, move out into rural America, and feel the pain....crap service.

You think I'm "city folk?" I must admit you gave me a good laugh. I live where we call "behind the redwood curtain." That has a lot of elements, but it particularly means limited goods and services. No cities of any consequence, very limited population over hundreds of square miles. Narrow highways that are often blocked in the three possible directions of departure by inclement weather. Often the highest gas prices in the 48 states except for Death Valley.

It is true that AT&T finally got fiber in here a few years ago (single run), but for many years we were piped out by microwave over 150 miles of mountains, and my 6 meg DSL (and T-1) date back to several years of that era.
