At times living in the northwoods, communication seem to be from days gone by. We are in what they call a 'dead' spot. We must maintain a land line because cell reception is not possible.
We and our friends have tried every brand of cell phone made-- to no avail.
When we first moved here my internet was dial up, that put me over the edge in no time.
I did some research, and found Hughes Satellite would work, so had it installed. It was a huge improvement over dial up, but I never could watch anything on U-tube. Facebook was slow; and sometimes trying to post a blog or even read a few blogs took all morning.
NOT ANY MORE!!!
Hughes net has been advertising 'Gen 4'. When I called them two years ago, that service was not available in our area. Then the post cards offering Gen 4 started arriving in the mail. I called again, and yes, it was available!!
The service man was here yesterday. Gen 4 uses a different satellite than our old one did.
That is a slight problem.
These two trees are in the way, and have to come down. It was almost the deal breaker!!!
The Mister will find someone to help him take them down. It does break my heart to loose a tree.
For now the satellite dish sits on the ground.
The installer has to clear it with Digger 's Hotline, and will return to put the dish on a pole. Already, it is working better than what I had and should even have more speed once the trees are down, and it is permanent.
And that's the way it is.................
