@jain You have any suggestions for this?
We had Pegasus which became DirecWay then ended up Hughes.net. We were happy with DirecWay, but Hughes changed it policy to 'Fair Access' that seriously limited download ability. We could one NOT tell how much we were downloading - until we exceeded the limit (and BAM! we were at lower than dial up speed for 24 hours). It was like driving a car without gas gauge! And we seriously could NOT afford to be with out higher speed connection (business reasons). Lucky for us, the local one-horse telephone co. which is the ONLY land line service in our area, installed data lines and we had DSL. So we dropped Hughes like a rotten road apple.
I do know a person who has Hughes - no other option - and grinds her teeth over it often. We don't have a cell phone - just haven't any use for it - so don't have a clue about those options. It seems to me that wireless will eventually win out - mainly in city areas where density and distance isn't a problem. But in remote locations options are limited and maybe even non existent? Talking to folks in one's area would probabl be the best way to find out which will work best.
My personal motto - The Home, a peace worth fighting for.
