A Greener Indiana

Everybody can do something to make a greener Indiana

Not really related to a Greener Indiana but I was wondering if people had Internet providers that they would recommend, particularly any Satellite Internet Service Providers? I live in a town that is unfortunately dominated by a bigger Internet company whose customer service has been sketchy at best. My fiance has AT&T which has proven not to be not the most reliable option. My mom uses an Internet Satellite company. I've also experimented with a Wireless Internet option that broadcasts in our community and had little luck. Just wondering what Internet options other people have found that have gotten the job done at a good price.

this is something I know a great deal about since just about every family member or friend or family member of a friend or friend of a family member asks me about this. I just got through going through this with my dad who moved to rural indiana from florida.

Here are your best bets -
1- if you can get cable modem or DSL then that is your best bet. If you can get cable tv you can pretty much get cable modem. Contact your land line provider for DSL info.
2- In rural areas you often get a wireless provider who does not use satellite or cell phone .... it either uses 802.11 wi-fi or motorola canopy (where you will get a receiver supplied) There will usually be a 100 dollar setup fee.
3- if you get full verizon bars then you can use a cell modem...this is what I use because I need mobile connectivity...it is fast if you have full bars...if you have one bar then it slows down a lot.
4- direct tv offers hughesnet which my dad is going to get....there is no contract and no setup fee and it costs 69 per month. If you give me 2 weeks, I will have the chance to go to his new place and test it all out.

These are your options. You can expect to pay 40 - 60 per month for broadband.
