I'm Loving . . .
Finally, a couple of weeks ago I did some shopping around to see if there were any other providers in our area. Long story short, there was a provider that was broadcasting off of the tower that I can see from my back yard, and could give me "direct line of sight" service at high speed. They assured me that I would see a huge difference with their service. They were right. They came out yesterday and installed the service and it is like night and day from what I had. Simply awesome! I actually watched some of the Masters golf tournament streaming online yesterday without any pauses for buffering. I also watched an episode of The Office from nbc.com, which was simply impossible before. And, as for youtube videos - no waiting at all anymore! Imagine that - you click play and watch the video (instead of pausing it to give it ten minutes to load). Very cool! The best thing of all is that this new service is actually $5/month cheaper than what I have been paying (although I did have to break down and pay an install fee).
I'm loving our new service. It's good to be back in the 21st century again!
