The speeds aren't remarkable, but if you're living in an area that other high-speed options aren't available, it's a big step up.
For city-dwellers, it's easy to forget that some folks don't have many options for internet – if any. The folks at DISH have unveiled a new satellite internet service called dishNET that will almost certainly be welcome relief.
The new service offers a 5Mbps download at $39 a month and 10Mbps download at $49 when bundled with America's Top 120 or higher programming packages.
"Many unserved and underserved markets are years away from a telco or cable broadband build out, but dishNET is available today," says VP Brian McIntyre. "These services will have powerful, positive impacts for kids, educators, businesses, farmers and families -- no matter how far out of town they may choose to live."
