I can't get any cable or DSL where I'm at and wondered if anyone has had any experience with satellite high-speed internet service?
yep I did hear they have more porn than any US satellite and even a all male gay porn channel late at night. but personally my life isn't all about porn so I'm all set. as far as your buddy having a "black card" for dtv...I would call BS bro...unless it's a sub'd deal they are selling illegally in canada, but I bet it's not wide open or he'd be a very very rich man. none of this is against you bud, not in the slightest, I don't have anything to do with that stuff myself but I do know a local that is very big into it.
why is it that hard to beleive.....I dont know what you mean by "wide open" but i know about 10 different households that have an illegal directTV dish running in canada, it aint distributed here......
So, we might be talking about 10-20 times faster than dial-up with satellite? I don't do too much downloading of large files. I just mostly surf the web, research, read, etc., but it just kills me to wait several seconds for everything to load or a couple minutes for a site with a bunch of smoke and mirrors.Adolf Hilter said:Penguinsfan, It's about band width mate, On dial up you may get 44 kbits per second. On DSL, satellite broadband, and Cable you can get Mega bits per second. Think of it this way on dial up your looking like snail speed, whereas on satellite and broadband you are flying in a jet. F16. If you tried to down load the SP1 service pack on dial up it would take five to six hours, whereas on satellite broadband, the same information would take about 20 minuits.
