Broadband Internet Service
There are various ways to get the Internet today. DSL, Cable TV, Fiber Optic, Satellite and Over The Air.
DSL is provided by the local Phone company through your wired telephone system in your house. It may not be available everywhere. It used to be the most releiable and fastest available but no more. Depends on your location if it is even available.
There are other ways to get broadband. Your TV provider may offer it, both wired (cable) and satellite. Over the air service is available most places and may compete for price and speed. Here in Pahrump we have Rise Broadband that has reasonable speed. They are available in many parts of the country. This service requires a receiver on your house and a tower with a tramsmitter within visual distance, usually on cell towers.
Some providers are offering super high speed with various names like Gigabit. Here in Pahrump our local electric company is in the process of providing a fiber optic system to all of Nye County. This promises to provide speeds of 25 mbps now and 50 mbps later at a lower cost than we now pay for 15. 1-30-18 update. Been using this service for 6 months now. Very happy with it at a solid 25 MBPS constantly with rare outage.
So things are changing so fast, you need to check and compare for your location.
