Or perhaps not so secretly.
Yeah I know we live 5km down a gravel road. But honestly that doesn't mean we live in the middle of no where... in fact we are conveniently positioned with good (if a little muddy) access to most places. And it isn't as though the nearest neighbour is miles away.
I am sick of slow dial up internet access. And as work will probably make a contribution to faster access I have been trying to get some.
Broadband - no, the exchange is too old, and they have no plans to upgrade it, but they will note my interest in broadband. I might be able to get wireless...
Wireless - no, the nearest wireless access is in Pyes Pa, that's about 15km away. Now come on we can get cell phone reception here (admittedly not great but we can get it) wireless works through cellphone towers why can't I have wireless? Just can't, but they'll note my interest. Satellite is the only option.
Satellite - maybe, that will be $3000. Oh right. I'll think about this a little more.
Wasn't there some agreement, in fact Telecom have a contract, to supply broadband to the rural community?
I am SO not impressed.
