I got a flyer from Signature Wireless Internet. It provides rural areas
with line of sight microwave signal, from towers around central Iowa.
Has anyone tried this company, and is it very fast or reliable?
It sounds good for us with dialup service. Or would one of the cell phone companies be a better choice for high speed service? Thanks for the input.
I just got a new wireless router that will run off of cable, or when it is down I can insert my Verizon card and it will run the router broadband. A little slower than cable,but it is a nice backup for when cable goes down.
In the small town that I grew up in, they started offering a similar service about 6-8 years ago, but I think it was very expensive for very mediocre speeds. Of course things have probably improved dramatically in the tim since, but they're both using the same technology so it's hard to tell. If you have DSL or cable around as an option, I'm betting it's probably faster and cheaper - not to mention more reliable in snow or rain.
Sometimes it is the people who no one imagines anything of who do the things that no one can imagine.
