We get our internet connection via a satellite receiver. If we wanted television reception, it would be the same. It is much too expensive for what it is, but here aren’t any reasonable altenratives, and I looked at all of them.
If there is lightning, we lose connection. If it rains, we lose connection. If it snows, we lose connection..
I never know, though, if it is the satellite connection, my computer, or the programme. When the technician came to replace the damaged satellite receiver recently, he had to re-adjust the dish. He commented that soemtiems a house will settle, but he had never seen one move up. I explained that we had floor jacks installed, so it had indeed moved up.
I have threatened to get rid of the internet. We may yet. It is expensive. The nearest public access computer is not very close, and not all that accessible. I could go back to snail mail, if the snails were more co-operative.
