quick postie

we now have high speed internet.
The local phone company put a radio receiver on the top of our house. They mounted it to the TV anntena pole. It receives internet signals from a broadcaster located on the top of the water tower in a town 15 miles away.
we are too far from anywere for DSL, so this was the best solution. We are 1 of the first 5 to be able to get it. Now they will wait to see how everything works before getting any one else set up.
This is like going from walking speed to 100m/h. what a difference this is. we still need to get a router so we can get both computers up and running on high speed internet. DH's computer is stilll on dial-up until we get the router.

  3. Hi Heather and TattingChic,
    Thanks for your comments,
    TattingChic, you might be able to check with your local museum or maybe a scrapbooker, they should be able to tell you.

  4. Whoo hoo...Now you are cook'n, I hope it all works out ..because it is impossible to go back to dial-up.
