infinasky is coming out Monday! Im stoked! Ill be able to upload to soundcloud, and watch netflix without hiccups.
Why is the dish pointed towards a tower and not a satellite?I live in the sticks.... i mean the stttiiicccckkkkssss. i could set a lawn chair in the road in front of my house and read a good portion of a novel before id have to move for a car. I have DSL and they have oversold it to the population down here so what was 3.5 mps is now maybe 1 mps.... (im not joking)
I looked into satellite internet and found a company that doesn't cap your data, no limits at all. I got the 20mps package.... now i know some of you are saying thats not that fast.... but for me? boy howdy i will acutally be able to upload my music to soundcloud, along with a slew of other things.
They acutally mount a satellite dish on the tallest tree on your property to point to the tower on the mountain. they came out today to make sure it would work here and they said it would. they are coming out in January to install it (i have no idea whats with the wait) but its worth it! I cant wait!
Microwave point to point?
4k video signals? That has to be pretty fat. (I don't know though.)I had a 40Mb/s service. I don’t understand why people pay for crazy high speeds. Bragging rights, sure, but I think a lot of people waste a shit-ton of money of high speeds.
We live in the middle of town and up till last year our options were satellite internet or suddenlink (we have them at work and I'm not paying those bastards a dime for their sorry internet). The town put in some of the firewire internet, and dear God it's fast. I've never been able to watch an HD video on the internet before and now some stuff automatically loads in 4K.No company wants to either lay cable or fiber for homes on 5 acres each..in the foothills near Tucson.. It's a big country..all spread out..
You can watch HD Netflix with 30Mb/s.4k video signals? That has to be pretty fat. (I don't know though.)
Generally I think people want high speeds for HD Netflix and the like.
I was surprised to realize gaming doesn't actually need a fast signal. Not like it's sending graphics or sounds, it's just positional data and shot placement, pinging to keep things as much in synch with other gamers as possible. I would've though gaming needed a good connection, but surprisingly not as good as I first thought.
"Oh man can't wait to play my new game!!!" **puts in game-disk**
