This is more or less a casual inquiry to see if anyone knows much about WiMax, but I currently have a very irritating dial up (peoplepc) that costs 8.95 and someone with a sign at the end of our road is promoting WiMax, with a receiver on top of a pole or tree or our house or something. This will cost close to $50 a month I believe, but with no cable in our area, and AT&T's 14.95 special "not available to us"(was transferred several times & they found something for over $60).
Well apparently its tricky out in the boonies.

anyone who recommends we move somewhere will be promptly ignored. I'm figuring with a cost of around $4 every time I want to drive to a library to use a real computer it might be worth it, besides I could actually try to sell things (books!) on or some other site that might make the payments affordable. Besides, my husband says maybe I'll look things up for him instead of just grunting & forgetting what he asked.
So anyway... here's the poll
Keep the ol' dial up, you don't need more expenses.
Try it, what have you got to lose?
Try a satellite dish or something else
I have a modem in my pants
Who needs a computer in 2011 anyway, get a smart phone
