Internet question

I have been trying to get high speed for quite some time, it's not as available here as other more populated places. The best deal I can seem to find is a local satellite internet provider but it's limited to 8 GB per month. My question is......is that enough? I download a few new songs when I hear something I like, probably download the odd movie but mostly surfing a bit and facebook and a couple forums like here. Telus and Rogers only have 3 GB plans for about the same money. I am so sick of dial up.

What do you think? I am a computer dummy.

8 gigs is probably enough for what you do Joe. Just bear in mind that movies are usually around 1 - 2 gigs. When you say Rogers, are you talking about their portable internet? That's what I'm using now and it seems to be all right.

Only game in town kinda thing, my neighbour has it and he likes it...the satellite thing and it's like 5 bucks a month more. You have to pay a bit more for equipment and installation but 3 GB a month I think I would burn up pretty quick.




Yeah Mike, it's all Rogers has here and limited to 3 GB. I can get 8 from BCInternet for 34.95/month.

well with rogers you have to buy the equipment too, at least I did, $100 for the modem. If that's the case you'd be better off going with satellite. Maybe I should get a job with them!

Get a job with Shaw and get them to hook us up here, the cable goes right through town . There used to be a guy that had a small cable tv company here, he died years ago and nothing is up now but his kids think it's worth a fortune, the rights or something, and Shaw says they will never pay it.

I think I will Tim, I went to my neighbours and tried his and it's wicked fast, of course anything compared to what I have is wicked fast

In a perfect world I would like something I could bundle all my services on but the pricing for anything else here is unrealistic.

I heard a rumour that you were God, now it has been confirmed I will be setting up an altar to you, please send some personal artifacts and proof of a miracle.
