I know of forum owners on other websites who depend on satellite daily. For items such as basic websites, email, and so forth it works perfect. Items such as 4K movies, it struggles. So much simply depends on what you call normal.
Sending files, email, opening docs should all be fine. But remote desktop (controlling office computer from home) will be laggy. Click a button remotely but will not see the result for 1/2 a second or more will be annoying.Do you think it will be fine for working remotely? Just basic internet stuff?
Thank you!Ya good post Tango, I was going to say, all that rural satelite based broadband is very soon to change and be much more like wired.
Start to care? Ha! that'll be the day....Comcast and FiOS dropping prices and starting to care about customers....
Hate to say it, DSL is considered high speed... There are a few of us, who remember when "fast" communication was a 2400 baud modem, replacing your slow 1200baud modem, or 300baud acoustic coupler....(Off-topic, non-pool-related.)
When my wife and I were house-hunting in 2011-2012, we visited 60 homes over 7 months looking for the perfect one. We found one we liked very much but it was in a dead zone for high speed internet. All they had was DSL, which is too slow. I brought my laptop and wired it directly to their modem, and speedtest revealed the slowness. Our real estate agent phoned every ISP and none would service it. We didn't buy that house and, given our constant internet use, are glad we didn't.
If you haven't closed yet, you might want to look elsewhere because you will miss high speed internet.
Interesting. How much is the monitor and can you provide more information about it? And have you had it go off due to animals in the pool?...
i was able to dodge the pool fence issue by installing one of those electronic pool monitors / warning systems that detects water motion. this made all parties satisfied.
Who is your cell phone provider and how good a signal do you get?i supplement this solution with using my phone hotspot.
it's the best i can find in this remote wasteland of the desert.
There ya go!!!Hey Kim. Remember that ‘my friends PB’ flat out told him that the neighbors would smash his windows out if he used that alarm because it would go off falsely 24/7 ?
Very true words right there.a fence is the right thing to do, regardless of codes or insurance. You have a pool? You have a responsibility.
Thank you. I consider myself very blessed...Love that Oasis of yours, Dirk!
