How much would a satellite internet thing cost to set up? I just inherited a house in the French countryside with no option other than dial up. Can't even get a phone signal there either.

That's because satellite isn't really meant for home use, it's meant when you need to shitpost from Tasmanian jungle or some shithole like that.

Your dish must be badly aligned, usualy the ka band (the one used in satellite internet) has good penetration upon bad weather
Not much, it's just the subscription and the dish (probably included in the subscription)

Where do you live OP? Are there not any WISPs in the area?

I work at a WISP and I know of point to point links going 50+ miles delivering broadband speed

>> No.48306064


The IT people have been having a hell of a time setting it up.

I do live in Georgia, though. Heavy thunder storms are pretty much a daily thing during the hotter half of the year.


The WISP was the worse option of the two. Slower, and I think that they actually shut off your internet at the cap. The salesdude actually recommended against using for home internet.

I live near Atlanta. I'm certainly not in the middle of the wilderness.

What's really stupid is that people who are like ten houses away have proper broadband.

>> No.48306076


* Or charged more, whereas this connection just slows you down to intolerably slow speeds for the rest of the month.

>> No.48306210

skyDSL provides satellite internet for your region if I remember well, costs like 50€/mo the subscription + 15€ if you choose rent-to-own payment method for the dish thing (basically is leased), speed is 16/6 Mbit and bandwidth should be unmetered. Just keep the dish perfectly aligned and it should be fine, they got video tutorials too on YT, the satellite doesn't move from the same position anyway.

I'm interested in satellite too because best options in my area are either 7/0,4 Mbit or 20/1 Mbit (Roman outskirts have shit infrastructures) but this one isn't reliable and the other is overpriced.

>> No.48306765

Are you sure that the dish is properly locked? most of the time the problem is the wind moving the dish and not the bad weather

>> No.48306895


Thunderstorms don't affect our equipment, What are your WISP options? I'm not just talking about 3G/4G shit.
You can also set up a wireless network with someone in your neighbourhood to share his connection and split the bill if you find someone cool, the hardware costs less than $200, draws ~5 watts on each end and as long as you have line of sight can go a few miles

the zebra isp in lithuania is the best isps i've ever had
at first, it was something like 8/8 Mbps (7-10~ years ago) and I could pay 1~ euro to get the speed up to 50~ Mbps.
then technician came of of fucking nowhere and installed 100/100 Mbps fiber, I didn't even pay for modem (got own router though)
there was no moment when internet went down, except when i forgot to pay for it because it was free for 3 months at very start

although I'm very happy even when I reach 1 MB/s on torrents, 12 MB/s is just blessing

same as here then
parts in sweden removing the ADSL since its to old.
it far to expensive to upgrade it. so they removing everything!

thus forcing of to mobile net with an 12 Gb cap/month

will be this for the nearest two years before we get fiber.
