Think that most of the time living with only dialup internet and local TV channels is good enough? Too busy for all that internet and 1,000 satellite TV channels stuff? That theory probably holds until something like the Olympics, World Cup soccer, or even the World Series come along and there is a scramble to find a place to watch literally dozens of games in a comfortable location where you won’t be imposing (at least not too much) on friends, acquaintances, or family members. Getting together to share the excitement can be fun and exciting, but let’s face it, no matter how much your friends, family members or long lost high school classmates love you, any event that lasts more than a few weeks may find you overstaying your welcome. This is all on top of the fact that you have to plan and okay your sports watching schedule with various parties on a regular basis. In these moments, one probably says he or she is “going to call and get high speed internet” or a “full TV package first thing in the morning,” but then the present athletic event ends, and the individual forgets entirely until the next event comes up. This time, don’t let that happen and get on top of getting connecting right away!
With modern internet technology, it’s not even necessary to subscribe to both satellite TV and satellite internet, with just the internet it is possible to get the vast majority of shows, movies, music and yes, even sporting events streamed live to your computer. With satellite internet broadband speeds it all happens fast, and you can quit making up excuses for your friends as to why ‘dialup works just fine for you.’ Nobody believes all those rationalizations about ‘living the simple life’ or ‘keeping your brain clear of consumer nonsense’ anyway. With the internet it’s easy to control the content you are viewing so just stick to those news, economics and current event websites the majority of the time with slight detours into sports every now and again!
At the moment, as anyone living in a rural or remote community will have noticed, there are still a great many holes in the terrestrial broadband grid where people just plain can’t get high speed internet. When there is no other choice but dialup, many people simply give up and accept they’ve got no choice. This is the wrong attitude, especially in an increasingly wireless world where internet technologies are improving every day. If television can come by satellite, and in fact many people today choose satellite TV because of its superior channel and programming offerings and picture quality, (oh yes, and superior sports programming from the world over) there’s no reason to think that satellite internet broadband isn’t far behind as one of the most economical and convenient options. From full time customer service to the ability to enjoy both the best of the web and the best of television, the excuses for not getting connected to high speed internet have officially run out!
