Internet connection speed

Post by davekob » Sun Jun 05, 2016 2:20 pm

I currently live in an area that only has DSL for the internet. This is VERY slow. And with some of the Apple updates this runs ALL night. It is my understanding that the Joyce area has several satellite options. Therefore, I was wondering if anyone is familiar with these, and which is the best.

Thanks for any feedback.

I expect some Joyce residents will chime in.

But speaking as someone who lives only 5 miles south of PA, I can tell you that CenturyLink's low-speed DSL is that slow. OS updates take hours to download. We usually do them overnight, one Mac at time.
