    Is it not just the fact you had a 'slow' connection that you were unhappy about?

    Or you just dont like AOL?
    Such is life.

    Congratulations. In my little town we have to share an ISDN connection between 3 or 4 computers, so it sucks. Let's see if the government gives us the stellite, although it's not very likely.
    And congrats on your departure from AOL.

    See if the government gives you satellite? Are you serious? What country do you live in?

    edit: if your title is correct... I guess you're from Spain. Do they not allow you to have satellite internet over there?

    OK, maybe it wasn't the best way of explaining it.
    I live in a very small town (~300 people, most old farmers) and so the phone company won't enable the phone exchange for broadband because it doesn't see any chance for profit. No other phone company will either for the same reason, plus, Telefonica used to be government-owend (and monopoly untill not so long ago) and it owns all phone lines in Spain except in really big cities.
    So, some government organization is going to apply for money from Europe so they can give us satellite internet cheap, as there's no other option. And that's what I meant by `giving us satellite'.
    And I say it's unlikely because they're asking for 7 million euros just hold a contest to choose a provider.
    The other option would be getting it through the power lines, but they were talking about that 4 years ago, so I doubt it'll ever get here.
    The best part is that the government had a plan for having all of spain covered with broadband by 2002. Guess how well that is going.

    Eh no. http://episteme.arstechnica.com/6/ub...6&m=5760980942
    Of course once you hit a computer/switch/router/ etc the signal is recreated and retransmitted so you get another 364 ft.

    There is no such thing as too far for a pringles can.
    If that fails, you could use an air ballon for relay.
    Or a couple of APs.
