Yes I was told by Xplornet of the minimum speed B.S. too. The satellite option for rural users around here is the only option because we live in a part of Saskatchewan that has hills, unlike other parts of the prairies. Therefore we are stuck with Satellite, even though I can look out my window right now and see a wonderful Sasktel cell phone tower that could be dishing up Sasktel wireless service to rural customers too. Unfortunately Sasktel does not think there are enough customers for them to make the effort to try wireless instead relying on their wonderful crap service from Xplornet to bring "Higher Speed" internet to all rural Saskatchewan.
My Speed as of tonight.
