Total annual rates on that listing is only $1,418.86

Man I am buying a house up there. I am in town on a 800m^2 section and pay more than that. I'm not even in the flash part of town!!!

I think I may take a 3G router (maybe even 4G?) and high gain access point up there and run it through a captive portal at $10/GB lol.

Looks like a Conklin to me. So it is probably out of physical or backhaul capacity.

pjamieson: Looks like a Conklin to me. So it is probably out of physical or backhaul capacity.

I said that on the first page (to a degree heh), but yes it's a Conklin so when they finally get internet it won't be a pleasant experience.

This kinda stuff is amazing really... I mean surely if they are that concerned about a 'good' internet connection they are all rich anyway.... So just get the whole neighborehood together put the dosh towards approaching a company like WxC or something and get something done about it. Stupidity and their idiotic idea of entitlement is amazing.
