I must say goodbye Excede. Look at the speeds I'm receiving from my AT&T fixed internet service. Never had this type of speed with Exede out of the 3 to 4 years I've been with them. Not only that but I'm only paying $50 a month for 170gb and if I happen to over it's only $10 per 50gb. I one happy fellow right now.

Thats pretty amazimg. I never had speeds like that when I had AT&T. The only thing they were ever able to imcrease for me was the price.

If you can get it, go for it.  You would be dumb not to.  But AT&T Fixed seem to service only areas of higher populations.  Us true boonies still pretty much only have satellite.

I had high hopes for this technology at one point. Seems they are using it in higher density areas rather than replace 75 year old copper. I thought it would expand services, but apparently it is only going to replace existing service for the most part. A few more will be served. I stand a better chance of cable coming.

Yeah, we'll see LEOs before we see wired internet where I live. Wanna know the part that chafes? There's fiber optic running along a US highway about 3 miles south of where I live. My neighbor called to see about the possibility of getting internet up our way, and was basically told no.

I went and asked the cable company how much to run to my house (less than two miles away). They quoted me a price. I asked who I make the check payable to. They then said it wasn’t going to happen. I was stone cold serious and couldn’t get them to really consider it.
