no high speed!

Aw crap, the new house I'm moving into only has dial up in the area!

I'm gonna pull my hair out!

Downloading is going to take forever. Maybe this is a good chance to break the hold the 'net has over my free time.

Cheers

BJ

You'll just spend triple the time surfing...pardon splashing the net..LOL
I remember when I used to download songs with dialup, it would take a couple of hours easy for just a couple of MB...horrible

Satellite is expensive but should be an option.

If you go satellite don't go Hughes/DirecWAY. I read 68 customer reviews, and about 30 of those had actually reported them to the BBB for misconduct.

EDIT: featured on the list was sudden drop-offs, the lack of the speed -- many even said dial-up was faster at times, and incompetent work staff.

If you went at Cable/DSL, look at some Wireless options for home use, they might not be where you'd look first, but are surprisingly available in a lot of areas.

Even the cable TV provider does not have a partner internet provider?
