Heh...1.5 mbps is the best I can ever hope for. No cable here in the swamp and certainly no wireless. Cell phones don't even work here. I'm 7 miles from the DSL repeater and the last 3 are copper instead of fiber optic.
I've considered satellite but they won't guarantee anything and you can't find out your available speed without signing a two year contract.
Good coffee, good weed, and time on my hands...
