And most of the WIFI hotspots lack enough bandwidth to be of more than minimal use.
3g seems like a good bet for the future
***** Time you enjoy wasting, was not wasted. *****
yeah directv had a pilot project in caloforina when i worked for them that had a subscirption based wifi service for a whole city
that s not directv that offers high speed satellite internet its hughes remember when they were called direcway then got changed to hughenet the reason for that change is everybody thought they were directv so they would call directv for hookups and stuff so they changed it and the wifi was in a anaheim caloforina i think they closed that project down wasnt working right or something
Yes, Hughes does offer satellite internet, but so does Directv. I know this because I had it before. You need a special dish that was called the duo I believe. Anyways the speed absolutely sucked, especially the upload speed. But that was about 7 years ago, so I'm not sure if they still offer it.
the dish you are talking about was directway which isnt owned by directv but hughes and they change the name to hughesnet to prevent confusion if you did call directv for internet all they would do is transfer you to hughes directv did have a reciver that could access internet on there box and the satalite dish you are talking about could it have been refered to as the 2 lnb dish as in 2 low noise blocks
only when 3g will be free,only then it can be compared with free wifi hotspots
