The only service available in my area is through Wild Blue, which I used in the past for about $80 a month. The customer service was through Dish Network and was terrible. The connection was down a lot and when I called, they said must be bad weather or that they just didn't know why. At the end we had not been able to connect for days and they were going to send someone out three weeks later. That was it for me with them.

Next we tried Frontier who delivered the equipment and began charging us with no problem but then had a problem with everything else. After weeks of scheduled service visits that they never made it to and running tests on their end that showed no problem they finally sent someone out who discovered we weren't in an area that could receive broadband service. So that was it with me for them also.

Now I use a wireless hotspot through Virgin Mobile. The one month plan is $50 and lasts no where near a month. I have never been able to watch videos with any of my plans because the speed is just too slow. I would like to take online classes or at least have Netflix but it isn't possible with these speeds at these prices.
