Ur moving from Anchorage to Lovelock? That is gonna be soooooooo lame! Anywhere that doesn't have a cable connection is too archaic for me!

I have heard of a really good one that my Computer Science Instructor mentioned a couple years ago when I took that class... I don't think it was either of the ones you mentioned though, since its satellite, you should be able to get any provider not just those two because satellite signals are attainable anywhere on earth (as long as there aren't any trees or hills obstructing the signal).

I'll do some research and try to remember what he suggested... I remember the price was really good like $100 for the equiptment and then like $30 a month... There is also DirectWav you can get DirecTV TV service and DirectWav internet service both from DirecTV with only one dish!

OK OK I remember now!!! Guess all the THC didn't kill my brain cells like the gov't wants you to believe, lol!

Its called Wild Blue Here is a link High Speed Satellite Internet Service Providers

I must have been off a little on the pricing though but not by much... It said the equiptment to buy is $249 and its about $50 a month for their lowest speed... Hope this helps!

Thank you in my research I did see where they are promoting the equipment to be 299.00 with a monthly fee of 59.00

Here in Anchorage we have cable internet no fees for installation and unlimited usage is $39.99 a month. But I realize living in a rural area we will be paying more for the luxuries and conveniences of life

You can always get dial-up too if you have a land-line, but I wouldn't recommend it unless City-Data is all you do!
