Anyone have wireless internet from home

Pull up a chair and grab a cup of Java for a cozy chat about what's on your mind and what's happening in your neck of the woods. This is a strictly for fun non-gardening topics.

Smitty, I believe that you'd still have issues with that if the coverage in the area was blocked by hills or tree cover. I also think those thumb drives and the cost for service might be pretty expensive.

you may be right. I just saw the commercial for it. I'm fortunate to have access to highspeed thru the phone co.

I just remember hubby commenting on it when the commercial came on TV. They'd be great for people who are backpacking across Europe or climbing Kilimanjaro for sure. Gadget junkies would love them. I guess it's one of those things you'd have to look more closely at and weigh the pros and cons.

Betty

I just read wireless is coming in every home in NS

I'll see if I can find the article


Here it is but starting in a strange place as Caladonia, a much smaller area than you and I live
