Verizon wireless is faster than satelite and is going to drop my monthly charges by $75 per month. The only down side from that is I have an Apple air vault with built in wifi. I could access that hard drive through wifi wirelessly. Now it does not even show up as a drive. I have to find out if I can directly hook up through USB port. I also got rid of satellite TV 2 years ago and bought an antenna for over air HD tv. I get 15 channels free of charge. I was using Netflix but they only had their lower rated movies on the standard rate. The movies I wanted to watch were "rentals" at another charge. I dropped them too as I don't watch much TV anyways. Have not tried Amazon.
My first move has to be to get suitable internet at the house. Right now the only option I know of is a wireless service provider here in town who offer a package designed for streaming content and is $70/month. If we get that and drop the satellite that's a $40 savings per month.
Provided we find a suitable internet source we'll also be looking to significantly reduce the $220/month cell bill by dropping most of the data plan
Time Warner Cable is available in town here but last I checked they don't have service run on this road. We have our cell phones through Verizon, maybe I should check with them and see if they have high speed internet available where the data isn't limited like it is with the cell phone plans??
Is the Verizon mobile broadband your speaking of through the cellphone provider?
