i had starband 2 years ago... i personally like to play online games... and starband sucked for that, avg ping times to yahoo.com = 700ms and up... average game server ping times = 1300ms+

if you are just up for browsing the web and downloading.. it works great.. .but pricy. (although i think they have better pricing available on the equipment now... it was 900 bucks for the equipment and install when i bought it.)

The satellite thing is better than dialup but pricey. The equipment is about 700 upfront with 59.99 a month for about 1.2 down and 128 up at best. OR you can sign upp for one year and pay 99.99 a month and own it after that.

ISDN cards are like modems, but 5 times faster. They require special telephone lines, which cost a little (or a lot, depending on your phone company) more than normal phone lines. ..ISDN, which stands for Integrated Services Digital Network, is a system of digital phone connections which has been available for over a decade. This system allows data to be transmitted simultaneously across the world using end-to-end digital connectivity.

When it says 5x faster your talking in the range of 128k to 256k.

idsl only works if you a few thousand feet from the limit. If you are 20,000ft+ from the CO, you're fucked.

Also, if they have any gauge wires that are smaller then 26 anywhere in the line you are fucked.

Load coils on the line, you are fucked.

You're pretty much fucked
