I would like to have a choice. Out here in rural southeast MI. we are not given a choice. I an thinking about going to a satt. connection though. I think it would increase the value of my home too.

I install Starband and Direcway, as well as a few others. They are not the end all and be all either. Although for folks in the boondocks, it may be the only other alternative. I think I would wait till the ka band satellite for Wildblue comes on line in early 2005 and then you will have three or four choices of satellite platform. For now, Cable modem appears to have the edge on speed over all possible choices other than T1 line, and now there is one faster than that. I travel enough and need my connection with me, that dial up is my only alternative for now.
