Living in the boondocks has its drawbacks. Like not getting fast Internet speeds. Today we got a new satellite system installed, replacing the old satellite system we have had for over ten years. It’s fast. There’s a Web site that I look at occasionally which consists of 50 or so time-lapse screen-filling full-color satellite images of weather over half the continent. It usually took three or four minutes to load all the images before it would play. This afternoon, it took less than ten seconds!
Four-minute download reduced to under ten seconds!
Wow! Civilization-speed Internet in the wild! Using the new system I wrote an email to a friend, and even before I hit the Send button, I got her reply!
