Here's the setting ... Location : South-Central Wisonsin Pros : Beautiful acreage, oak forests on long riverfront footage, ATV trails on property. Decent beer selection in area, relatively low property taxes. Friendly neighbors. Did I mention decent beer selection in area? Cons : No broadband. Our land line is Verizon. No DSL availalbe to home. I do not see Verizon supplying DSL to this area ever in my lifetime. The nearst town is two miles away, population about 200. No cable access. I am currently trying AllTel's wireless access. Unfortunately we only get a 1X connection at max transfer rate of 144Kbs (actually around 132Kbs with noticable latency in initiation of download). For $60/month this is sad, but there are no FAP's in either direction. Options : Satellite Anyone using Satellite internet for gaming? Anyone? If so, who are you using? Current D/L speeds are decent 1Mb to 1.5Mb. The current U/L speeds are around 200Kbs, but how bad is the latency. Most provides say to add about 1ms to normal net latencies. Some of the providers are beginning to offer halfway decent FAP limits on D/L and U/L limits. Any input appreciated. I am not willing to move to get better service options. It's just too nice here. But I am always looking. If anyone has heard of anything new, let me know. If it works to my satisfaction, I'll make if worth your time.
