Frankie's mom here. I have had 2 emails and one comment asking for info. about Wildblue today.
I have had this since March 08 and have been totally satisfied...
They are wonderful people to work with.
It is not cheap to start with since you have to BUY the Dish, but they do have 3 monthly packets that range in cost from approx. $50.00 to approx. $70.00. The price per month is based on the speed you choose. The faster you want things to go.. the more you have to pay. I can't give you the exact amt. since I ALSO have my virus protection through them. It is Super too. SO FAR... I have not had one "invasion" get through. The Virus protection is called F-Secure. It is super easy to run and has been great so far.
Here are the phone numbers that I have for Wildblue
1-866-945-3258 and 1-866-798-4787
They are going to be putting a new sat. up in Feb. or March 2011 and tell me that it will be even faster, no matter what "plan" you are on.
Today the GUY had to put a new T.R.I.A whatever that is... on and he did an adjustment to the dish. I know that I am getting on blogs much faster now and can leave comments faster also. This is the first time I have ever had a full survice call since it was installed.
It isn't my beloved old friend... ROAD RUNNER... but it beats the holy heck out of dial up.
Hope this helps you . LP
