I was looking at a home in castle rock that i wanted to move into pretty soon, except comcast nor quest have service for that specific location. Internet is a neccessity for me, does anyone know any other provider that may possibly cover the area already.

I recently heard about kellin communication, has anyone ever heard about their service?

We had Qwest in Castle Rock. Not sure where in CR you are looking that they wouldn't offer service.

Default High Speed Data

Here is Kellin Communications web site.
Kellin Communications Wireless High-Speed Internet Phone Services For Colorado
They appear to offer DSL but if Qwest/CenturyLink can't get DSL to you likely they can't either. You could see if you are eligible for their line of sight microwave service or their business service.

For homes not covered by cable TV high speed data or DSL from Qwest/CenturyLink you could look into access through a satellite. Providers include Hughesnet and WildBlue. Before you think you've found the answer put them in the city data search engine and see if the availability that people are reporting fits your need.

Personally I would be concerned about down time during bad weather as well as speed. My Comcast service used to go out whenever it rained and Comcast couldn't find the problem. It was a real hassle because not only was it out when it rained it wouldn't come back on until the ground dried out. We switched to Qwest/CenturyLink and haven't had a problem since. Not saying that weather is a problem for Comcast generally, it isn't. However, it gave me a taste of what it would be like to rely on good weather for internet access and it was not fun.
