    If so, how do you like it? How much do you pay a month?

    Do you ever encounter any problems and if so how quickly do they get resolved?

    I am sink and tired of this Verizon DSL bullshit.


    Thanks for any info.

    I hope you don't plan on playing any games or real-time voice/video communications if you're gonna use a satellite internet connection

    Satellite internet is usually a last resort for people who live in areas too rural get anything else.

    I'm not sure what's wrong with your provider, but DSL is typically rock-solid reliable. But if for some reason your particular provider sucks, satellite is an option if you don't care about lag, and don't need high upload bandwidth.
