How Much Trust

I've just been doing a bit of a search for high-speed Internet access out at the ranch. We've heard recently from some neighbors (within a 5-mile radius) that they've got DSL via Splint, which is our land-line provider. Splint, however, does not (at least via their web site) agree. Looking for wireless, I've ruled Verizon out. Splint is not on that list for me; I'm not a particularly satisfied land-line customer, not sure why they think I'd be happier as a wireless customer.

Cingular is still debatable; I'm not going to log into my account there via the currently in use workstation for a couple reasons; I'm with a patient, and it's rather public. AT&T Wireless is of course now Cingular. I find this interesting, that when it was AT&T Wireless I could access the Internet via my cellphone and a cable connected to my laptop; now I can not. My account did indeed change. And while as an AT&T Wireless customer I'm supposed to be able to log into the Cingular site, this doesn't always work so well.

I can't find much info about satelite ISP's out there. I know they exist, just can't put my hand on the info.

There are advantages to living where we do. A lot of advantages. High-speed Internet is not, apparently, one of them. Why am I not surprised.
