Hello all!

I live in Fate, Texas but have a Royse City mailing address.

I want to get rid of AT&T and their ridiculous usage caps. Can anyone recommend another high speed ISP that services my area?

Thanks very much,
kchase77

Try Partnership Broadband. My parents live out that way and use them. You will have to put an antenna on your house.

This works great. I second this.

Thanks for the recommendation, guys, but I sure hope neither of you works for the company. They have a terrible reputation and the BBB gives them an F rating.

I noticed on dslreports.com,where they are giving Partnership a bad rep, that a company called Skybeam services the area...not sure mine specifically, but does anyone know about them? Seem to be very responsive on the forum.

My mother lived in rural Hunt Co. just past Royse City, and she used Partnership for 7 years to run her home based internet business. She only had a couple of outages, and they were always fixed quickly. Considering that her only other choice for internet access was dial-up, they did a pretty good job for her.

I have a home-based business too, so that's a concern. I looked for a website for them but did not find one. Any chance you know how to reach them?

Thanks again,

Okay, thanks.

I had thought they were now Skybeam after seeing on another forum about a merger and so I found the Skybeam site and sent them an email asking about service in my area. Have yet to hear back.

Does anyone have any other suggestions?

After waiting a week for Skybeam to contact me and never hearing back from them, I wrote them off.

So still looking.

Thanks,
