I'm used to rain and cold messing with my DSL, but we've had seriously degraded Internet for the past several days, even when it is sunny outside.
Internet America which is a service that puts a huge mast in your yard and gets a signal from a water tower a few miles away. But when they sent me back a quote, the start up costs (installation and the purchase of equipment) combined with the monthly fee for not much more of a speed than what I'm supposed to get with DSL made me skip that idea. I will just say that what they show on their web page is not what they offered me.
I often see these commercials for HughesNet but to be honest, it seems like everyone I talk to who has had it was unhappy. Regardless, I may call them and see what they can offer.
Of course, all of this is one of the cons about moving out of the city. I love Internet and would love to waste hours at a time clicking on YouTube videos, but it is a minor irritant compared to the traffic and other nonsense we no longer have to deal with.
