Help with new internet

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hello. Recently, I've been looking for a new internet provider. I'd prefer a wireless provider, but a wired one could work if necessary. I plan on mostly using it for online gaming (League, SWTOR, etc.), so a pretty high or even unlimited data plan would be much appreciated. Also, I'd really like to get 50+ Mbps spedx, but less would definitely be acceptable if needed. Also, I'm only going to be working part time, so the cheaper the better. I know it's asking a lot, but help would be much appreciated. Thanks.

Why would you want a wireless provider? Anyways, you're going to need to list your location for anybody to help you.

I would like a wireless provider so I can take it back and forth to college. And I live in Sioux City, Iowa. My college will likely either be here, or in Cedar Falls, Iowa, just in case that was needed, too.

Realistically, you're not going to find an unlimited data plan with 50 meg plus speeds. I've never heard of a college that didn't have the internet, and surely you have internet at home.

I looked at freedompop, but it didn't seem like it would have nearly enough data.

Alright then. I just wanted to know, because I'm not sure how good my college internet is going to be. And the only internet plan in my area that looked like it would work is CableOne, and I've heard that it can be extremely unreliable at times. It doesn't necessarily have to be unlimited, I'm thinking I'll be needing about 100-200 gigs a month, depending on whether or not my brother is going to use it as well. Thanks for your help, though.
