WildBlue: High Speed Satellite Internet Provider: Official Website

I'm on the lowest package. I don't feel its worth the price for slightly higher speed. Plus there's still a pretty strict data limit.

And it was 30 degrees yesterday.

30 degrees....must be close to short and t shirt time?
One of my military assignments took me to the State of Texas around Christmas time.
They asked me what the weather was like in Minnesota....Told them it was warming up at 20 below zero! I was serious and they couldn't grasp my humor.

Wish I could help more with you internet speed at your home.
I would ask neighbor if I could tap in to their cable line and even offer to pay for some of their bill. Just an after thought as I don't want to get you into trouble stealing from the cable company.

Oh I was definitely out in shorts.

None of my immediate neighbours have access to cable either. It's the ones on the next block type deal. It's kinda hard to explain. It wouldn't be possible to tap into it.

Don't want you to get into trouble by tapping in.
Just be real careful when you are away from home and going wireless.
Do all your private stuff at home with safe guards/passwords.

Make sure you put on some sun screening cream....hehehhehe
Are you in a rural/farming area? Put solar panels on the cows and save energy bills to pay for higher speed from Wild Blue.

Haha. No I live in a neighborhood type setting. No solar panel ready cows.

Would the reliability of the t mobile deal be fine you think? My Android seems to do pretty well on a 4G Verizon connection. Just a shame they don't have an unlimited mifi plan.

The answer to reliability of the mobile deal is I don't know. I don't do any wifi ing anywhere but in the confides of my home with my laptop in front of the tv.
Not up to speed with all you young whipper snapper's out there.
Is cable ever going to expand their coverage in your area? Why did they stop a few blocks from your house?

Small solar panels will work on dogs and cats if needed.
