Up until 3 years ago I lived in a very rural area where they started adding line-of-sight towers. A great alternative for areas that will never see fiber at their homes. Unfortunately it takes time to build out all those sites.
Why do you need a new line?I talked to Windstream the other day, since I keep getting their flyers in the mail advertising their new internet service Kinetic.
I told them unless they would run all new line too our house from the service box, I couldn't us them.
Line of sight isn't an option for our area yet, so that's not an option either, yet. Might be something to consider in the future though.
Looks like next month, we might give ViaSat a try out and see how good or crappy they might be.
Because years ago, the line running from the box to the house was cut in several places when they cleaned the ditches with a Gradall. The serviceman just spliced and buried the cable and for four years, the phone service and internet were total crap. It needs a new cable ran from the box to the house.Why do you need a new line?
Other than Windstream, or HughesNet, that's all the options we have. We are too far out to rely on our phones for internet. The cell reception isn't strong enough or reliable.I used satellite for a couple years. I’ll do without internet before using that crap again. And we did for a long time, no service aside from what we got on our phones.
