    I've heard about internet service via a small satilite dish ya mount on your house. I'm consittering buying a house way out in the sticks, but really don't want to have to go back to a dial up service. No cable that far out. Will use satilite TV.

    That's way high priced, Do you think the price will come down in a few years

    It is way too much but if you live out in the country it could still be worth it. Last time I checked though the satelite was only for download, you still needed dial out (provided) for uploading.

    Satelite now works for download and upload. It's overpriced, but it is speedy. It has a very high latency, so its usless for online gaming.
