Internet Help

post #1 of 12

Think I'm happy that I was able to get internet? Well no, because, again, I was told that I can't get service. I have tried everything, including persuading the cable company to come 282 feet, offering to pay the DSL company more to come to our area, and even considering putting a 50 foot tower on my roof. It seems there is no one that wants to fill the capatialistic void that is left to fill (as a business) in my neighborhood.

Any ideas for faster than 768kbps internet with okay latency?

Thanks,
Gamer.

**EDIT**
That pic is what I got when my address was entered into their serviceability form.

I wish it were that simple, see it's for gaming, and DSL should work at 2.2 mi from CO shouldn't it?

I work at a DSL company and it depends. 3 Mi is the max we serve from our CO's and it is pretty rough that far out for anything at a decent speed. Even the people that are placed at 2mi+ have issues getting good speeds. Lots of errors, noise, etc at that length. Though I'd think you'd probably be able to get around 2mbps DL and maintain a stable connection depending on the standard.

Having worked for a major ISP for almost 10 years this answer is very simple and complex at the same time. I will also answer why the OP keeps being told why they qualify at first then told it is not available when they hook it up.

DSL today comes in 3 basic flavors, all copper, Fibre to the node (FTTN) and Fibre to the Home (FTTH)

All copper DSL means just that... old fashioned normal phone lines carrying DSL all the way from the CO (distribution point of the telephone system for your neighborhood) to your house. It is limited by things like load coils (prevents interference on load coils) distance etc. Although geographically your house may be only 1 mile from the CO, the actual cable length could be 2 miles long or more depending on the path it takes. Also corrosion, bad connections etc all play havoc with DSL signals. Speeds tend to be capped at about 6-7Mbps

FTTN is basically a Fibre connection from the CO to a Node (Typically a stinger box or something similar) and then the Telco runs standard copper lines the last 100meters to your house. THis offers much faster speeds usually capping out around 25Mbps or so. Although the longer the copper the less speed you can theoretically get.

FTTH is just that... a Fibre optic line the goes from the Telco all the way to the demarcation point outside/inside your house. Speeds possible if it was unrestricted? 700Mbps or more.

In the OPS case.. seems like he is just unlucky enough to live in an area that is just not well serviced by any ISP and the cost to install the infrastructure to service what seems like a small group of potential clients just is not worth the return.

In Canada there was a service offered that gave comparable speeds to DSL & Cable using Cell phone towers but I am not aware if it exists in the US at all.

Sorry I couldn't be more help.

Cord you were a lot help. Is it legal to run fibre/cable from nearest spot for our selves? Is there any non-normal way to get fast interent anywhere? Like non-normal fixes, like beaming connections, running cable, or whatever. Thanks!
