    For working on a remote server, dial-up is faster.

    Also, you cannot use a VPN and any kind of encryption drags it to a crawl.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!

    •  I VPN into remote servers (6+ / 0-)

      every day and deal with large amounts of data - and I do it on satellite without a problem.

      I'd prefer to be hard wired because it's more reliable, but I can't complain about the speeds.

      It is the only provider in this area, and I was really worried about upload speed in particular when I first moved here, but it just hasn't been an issue.
