After several recent abortive attempts, and many years (11 to be exact) of intense frustration, I am pleased to announce:
WE HAVE BROADBAND INTERNET ACCESS FROM THE FARM!!!!
Our new provider is Hoosier Broadband, and with 768 kbps down and 384 kbps up for $50 month, it should save us about $50 off our current ISDN setup with AT&T. Six times faster downloads, three times faster uploads, my bill gets cut in half, no data caps or throttling - what's not to like?
It's wireless, and I'm sure there's going to be some signal degradation during stormy weather, but still ... it's broadband, it's fast, and we're surfin' like it's 1999!
