Suggestions for satellite internet
« on: November 10, 2016, 07:37:49 PM »
Howdy,
I'm wondering if any of you have suggestions on internet service provided through a satellite? I've heard about Hughes. Any thoughts?

Thank you

It is probably a great service if your name is TRUMP !  ;D ;D ;D

Unless you are planning on being where there is no possible cellular service I would suggest that you use something like Verizon for Internet service.

I have a Motosat on the roof that I have not even been able to give away.  I have also never had a need for it.

I have a 30 gig Verizon plan with a 4G MiFi as my main connection.

I am sure that others will give you their opinions.

Just in case you've never experienced satellite internet, there are delays, long delays, due to the large amount of communication back and forth between your computer and a remote one on the web, even for a "simple" web page. Unless cell phone data service isn't available, I'd suggest as Bill says above, that you use Verizon, AT&T, etc.

Howdy Christine & Steve,

No direct experience ourselves, but we follow this couple's blog and they seem to know what they are talking about:
