Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me some venison.
Genesis 27:3 "The thinking deer hunter should mature through three phases during his hunting life. First phase, "I need to kill a deer." Second phase, I want to harvest a nice deer. And last phase, we must manage this resource so our children and their children can experience the grand tradition of good deer hunting." - Jim Slinsky

That's what we are only able to get here too and we do use Wildblue. I'm happy with the speed and downloading ability but there aren't any "papertrails" with this company so you have to remember to keep up with your account and all that cuz the won't send bills to you. Also, if you have a problem with any technical issues their tech. dept. isn't the greatest. I guess that it's a fairly new company and they are still working out the kinks but it's been working well for me so far. If you need anymore info Buck just send me a PM whenever and I'll try my darndest to help you out.
Oh Yeah, being a satellite signal receiving service you can lose signal on a rainy day.
