This morning, I’m getting HughesNet to come install new internet service here at the home place. I’ve used them before, so I pretty much know what to expect. I’ll let you know how it goes.
To balance out the costs, I’m going to drop my Alltel cellular broadband contract. It has certain advantages, but I have Wi-Fi at work and later today, I’ll have Wi-Fi at home; so the times are rare that I actually need it. The major advantage cellular has over satellite service is that it will work in a thunderstorm. It’s also a bit less expensive. The major disadvantage is that it can’t easily be shared.
