I figured that would let you know why I don't get a wired connection. I think anyone that is looking at Wireless broadband or Satellite internet has probally already tried getting DSL or Cable or even a WiFI hookup.
It sure hell isn't for bragging rights since its way slower then todays DSL or Cable.
It seems to me anyone that has had Hi Speed available to them always says that. You don't realize there are still lots of places that don't have it.
Hell I just pay $59.99 a month for mine just because I like slower service than the a cheap $14.99 768K plan from Verizon. Common logic should tell you there is a reason why I'm on wireless broadband instead of a wired connection.
Sorry I don't mean to come off smart but really man there are parts of the country that can't get wired and you should realize this. Its expensive running cables and they don't want to do it until there are service repairs needed unless its a highly populated area. Why run $300,000 in cables to service 50 houses? At some point there going to have to even if they don't like it. But for now dial up is still a option which keeps them from doing it.
At some point there going to simply have to do away with dial up and provide everyone with faster coverages. I for one can't wait for that time to happen.
Since I choose to live outside of the city this is a headache I have to deal with. Lack of options and people like you asking why I don't get wired. A simple answer I like the peace and quite. I like being able to hop on my fourwheeler and drive down the lane and hit endless trails. I like not being crammed in my neighbors ass. I like my privacy. This is why I don't have a wired connection. /rant of lack of wired connections over
