    Satillite Internet

    OK so here is my issue, the internet bill is 300 bucks a month sometimes 400. OK. It isn't reliable at all! I mean It takes me like soemtimes 10 minutes to load a page, and it keeps dropping.

    So I have tooked at some internet options, all we can have is DSL where I am at now. No cable. So I was looking at Satillite internet. I was wondering if it is fast and maybe somewhat reliable, we have not had any issue's with our TV in like two or more years. Not even a bump.

    How fast is satillite interent? We use Starchoice. We may be able to use Bell but I am not sure.

    I really would like this stupid internet to be usefull rather than a pain in the butt.

    Please help me !!!!!!

    Thanks :)

    Hello, I am not sure where you are but some general benefits of satellite are:

    There are some primary benefits of satellite Internet connectivity.

    1: Upload and download of data at broadband speed, 99% connection uptime.
    2: Optimization for multiple users
    3: Compatibility with Windows and Macintosh Operating systems are a few of the features which are offered by Satellite Internet providers.
    4: The phone line is always free because connectivity is established by using a dish and a modem.
    5: You do not have to invest in additional phone lines and no need to dial-in and miss important phone calls.
    6: The installation and the monthly charges are also competitive ranging from approx $59 per month to $199 per month.

    Though these are some of the benefits, you have to bear in mind that the setup fee could be costly as you would need a modem, satellite and could reach upto $100.

    If you can let us know which area you are based, we might be able to help you find the right company with good options .
