I sure hope so.


Haha, that about sums up Telco companies. They don't know their DSL from their asses.

That much land near my place would be quite a few million easy.

? quoting Gorbachev

Considering most here have broadband, I can assume also that most live in, or near a city.

City property is always gonna be higher.

This place is rural.

Go to mapquest.com and type in "Long" "OK"

Its out there I assure you. <img src=" SRC="images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

As for the phone companies, they really don't know their asses from a hole in the ground. I currently live about 4 blocks from a hub. due to routing, I am at the farthest extreme distance from it because it goes the other way from the hub back to me.

My upload/download would be significantly higher if the routing came my way first.

I still don't understand why some places don't have broadband. It is a simply wire, that is all. It is not as though they need any maintenance or anything.

Signal gets weaker over distance. There's your reason. And there's quite a bit more into it than "just wires". <img src=" SRC="images/smiles/icon_wink.gif">

Anyways, Orph I wonder if they're offering WiMAX connections around there. It's a bit slower in terms of latency than DSL(20 or 30ms around here), but the download rates are the same.

Good luck in your new investment, Orph. I'll be in Chicago next year for college, and it's an 11 hour drive to Long, OK, but I might end up taking the bus down there sometime during my college career.

You guys do know I travel. If you are 18 or more years old, all you got to do is tell me when and where to meet up.

Also, if you have summer vacation time from school/college, you are welcome to ride with me on my runs.

You will get to see a vast portion of the states that way.

I have been to all but 3 states. Alaska, Hawaii and Maine.

You must be over 18 though. No exceptions.

OK guys.

I am leaving for Idaho in the morning. By the time I return, my internet will most likely be turned off. As I mentioned already, I am not even sure if, or when I will get another connection.

Its been a blast, and I look forward to more fun upon my return.

Be good guys.

P.S.
Keep up with the birthday posts in my absence.

Well, I wish I was at home. I took some great pictures of the changes I have made to the place.

Oh well.. Soon I promise.
