Has anyone gotten the new VCA wireless 25mb internet they just started offering? I was wonder what the ping/latency of it was like since it's wireless and not a direct line.

VEA's residental fiber program hasn't been turned on yet. So far only the town businesses have it like the library or the senior center. Us regular folk are anxiously waiting for it to start. You can call VEA (775 727 5312), or visit in person, to put your name on the sign up list.

Dish says it can provide high speed internet service in Pahrump along with television programming. Has anyone checked into this?

I know there is a huge startup cost for equipment and installation but they never mention if it can be used by everyone in the house or if it's just for one computer. I did email them and they never got back to me a couple of months ago, so I'm really not wanting to go that route.

I googled the turtle and rocket advertisement and it may be Comcast but I've heard awful things about Comcast on their facebook page as well as other places online about billing and service interruptions that occur every day.

KeyOn is not called KeyOn anymore but something else and I've also read may bad things about them. I'll check WildBlue and HughesNet right now. If I may ask, why will you never go back to HughesNet? What problems did you encounter?

Oh and the AT&T DSL only goes up to 6Mbps and we are accustomed to speeds of 20-25Mbps here where we are currently. So that would really suck. But yeah, I'll take what I can get I guess.

satellite internet is no good if your a gamer because of latency issues with the signal going through space back and forth.
no idea on dish internet service though
