    If you have a choice on satellite or something via cable, I'd go the cable route. Satellite has weather problems, and it's more $$ than a cable high speed internet. That said, my only choices are dial-up or Hughes.net. I've had Hughes for 5 years now. If you get their system, definately pay for the "warranty". Even a simple service call will cost $200.00.........

    I signed up for the warranty last month.

    I use Wildblue.
    My 2 other options are put up a tower to get wireless broadband or use a cell phone broadband.

    Overall I have had good luck with it, the biggest complaint is the lag time of pages loading.

    I started with the 1.0 Mbps then switched to 1.5Mbps and really haven't noticed the difference.

    Have been using Starband for almost 3 years now. Very satisfied with their service. The down side is your limited to how much you can download in a 7 day period. Unless you are working with large files the limits are acceptable. I use Starbands fastest connection and the broadband phone system “Vonage” works pretty good. There is a small lag at the start but once a connection is made it works well. When the Starband contract expires am seriously considering Wildblue. Wildblue was not available at the start but is now and they are less money for the same connection speed.
