When I was in college I had super fast Internet access in my dorm room. It is hard to get used to anything slower. I am a writer and moved to a secluded area of the country about 10 miles out of town. I did not think about Internet access until I signed the lease. I found dslproviders.net and got the answer I needed. I found out that the area does not have cable TV so there is no cable Internet. Cell phone signal is not good so that option was out too. I tried DSL, but the phone lines out here are really old and service was a problem.
I found out about satellite Internet access. I had heard about it but thought it might be too expensive for me. I was wrong.
