Does anyone have recommendations for wireless internet? I've tried satellite(wild blue), cellular (Sprint) and they are hugely inferior to Comcast or DSL. Appreciate any feedback!
Any signal going thru the air will have much less bandwidth than a cable/hardwired signal. Think of it as different size hoses. If a Comcast cable is a fire hose, then cellular is more like a garden hose and takes longer to deliver the same gallon of water. Having said that and depending on where you live, you might try Sonic.net or their microwave partner, CDS? not sure about that name, I don't think it's CVS Microwave is kind of like satellite in terms of throughput or overall speed. If Sonic fusion is available to your location it's a great deal and very fast.

The CDS wireless internet was formerly pogowave. It is tremendously better than satellite because it does not have the delay where you have to wait for every upload and download to start. It's more like DSL in that sense. For West County people who can't get DSL or cable, it is a godsend.

You can keep sonic email for just a few dollars a month and get wildblue satellite broadband, about all that's available in West County and better than hughes.net. I was on sonic's broadband waiting list for a long time but it wasn't moving. Now I still have the great tech support!
