I might look into that...... I have an AT&T cell phone, and sometimes the signal isn't good here (rural area).

I dont have to get a Sprint phone, right?  I can just get their USB modem and sign up for their data service?

One more question.....What's the monthly CAP?    Its 12.5gb month for Hughes.

Did someone say rednecks and smartasses?  :smiley: Anyway yes I use the USB U720 model sith sprint service. $59.95 presently. And for me way better than satelite. The upload is decent also.

I get up to 600, and no bouncing off of sats for internet. Cell phone waves.

Next option, please . . . :tickedoff: :tickedoff:

A note on "knowing" your speeds, after a while using a fast connection regular, you do get the feel for it, I have tested here so much that I can honestly say that while watching the progress bar during the test, I can usually come within 500Mb before the test is complete.

When normally surfing, I can tell when there's an increase, pr decrease in my speed. I'm on TWC 15/7 which for what I do, and what I have here is great , other then the upload of course that whole thing is a scam if you ask me. The damn upload should match the download.

But either way, when a page doesn't simply appear in less then the blink of an eye, I know there's an issue. So all I'm saying is from where I sit, it is possible to know what your speed is after a while. I will attest to that.

Now I'm not on dsl, but I have been, and the connection was very stale and reliable.

You are EXACTLY RIGHT ! ! !

When using the connection you have, you have a pretty good idea of what speed you're running at.

And you're right, if a webpage I know should be loading fast doesn't come in at the blink of an eye, I know something's wrong.

Thanks for the analogy!
