I have satellite internet at home and i only get 1600 down and 200 up. I live in the middle of nowhere and can only get that. My friend lives a ways down the road right where the cable stops so he has that and gets 10,000 down and 1,500 up. They wont run the cable another mile. :icon_cry:

Yeah well the speeds i posted are on a good day. Nice clear sky. One day though it was clear out and my internet was down. Called them and found out that there was a huge storm over texas and it was knocking out one of there main satillites. I use Wildblue.

Sounds almost exactly like us. If we go down about 2-3 mile, they have cable. They say we won't get it because there aren't enough homes on our road! Again, they're full of it as there are enough people interested. We have even petitioned for it and sent out flyers on a regular basis. Satellite might be better than a modem, but it better be clear skies or you might as well not even have internet!

I use Wildblue.
Same here!

That's way beyond a T1...t1 is only 187KB up/down (1500kbps).

21000kbps is most likely a fractional T3, maybe split between your school and a nearby university or something.

I would kill for pipes like that :)

This is on my laptop with wireless dsl. Though its not the best; Im happy with it. It's good for me because Im not a gaming person. I refuse to get cable through local cable company (Mediacom).
