xx Internet Question
« Thread started on: Aug 3rd, 2016, 10:30am »

Living in the swamp as I do, utilities can be challenging. I currently have (and like) Direct TV satellite service for television. The only problem with it is that it WILL sometimes cut out if it rains very hard. I can live with that.

However, I get my internet on a phone line. It's not real fast, but it HAS been reliable. I would like to cancel my house phone, but then I lose the internet.

I'm thinking of trying HughesNet Gen 4 for satellite internet. Does anyone else here use it? Is it's signal susceptible to heavy rainfall like the TV signal? Comments?

Swampy,
If you have a good cell signal, use your phone for your internet. If you have an unlimited plan for data you can make out pretty good financially and sometimes the phone has better signals and faster up and dnlds!
I find it's cheaper and more convenient than getting a 'hotspot' !

Hughs can get very expensive. I had it when it first came out. I had to buy one of their 'special' computers because they wouldn't sell you the receiver internals or software for our own unit. Not sure what they zare like now but I'm betting it ain't cheap and probably not as reliable as your cell service!
