Both my internet choices are a joke. Its either Grande Communications (DSL) or Ygnition Cable. Both blow ass and oversubscribe like fucking crazy.


The shitty part about it is neither one of them even own the actual lines. AT&T does.

Is a house in your near future?

Also, have you considered a simple broadband wireless (cell) card? You can either hook it up directly or they make routers for it.

Or you can get a REALLY good antenna for a wi-fi card and find an unsecure network.

FYI ATT does not own Grande lines. ATT does not resell to Grande, I contracted for Grande they own all the cable they use, Ygnition owns the wire on the apt property from the MPOE. We (att) bring TN lines to the MPOE and it is up to Ygnition to get it out the apt. ATT owns no wire after the MPOE on the property which is usualy located by the leasing office.

Okay, big fucking deal that grande or ygnition own the final three hundred feet of line to my apartment when the lines ATT owns is a just over that three hundred feet away. It still fucking sucks.

Just an FYI, having a great antenna on your side is only half the battle. Wireless devices have tx/rx power settings. So, it is common for someone to see an AP and connect to it, but if the AP does not have an equal or better power setting you'll suffer from that point of view as it'll be the weakest link and you'll never KNOW it via standard consumer based cards/APs.

Take care,
