We made a crazy wrong choice last week, to go with satellite internet instead of regular DSL. Let me say, never again. We had it installed on Friday and by Monday we had an account with our local phone/internet provider. We now officially have dsl and a land line. I love not having to wait forever for pages to load. I love that we can stream netflix without going over our limit and then getting dropped to dial-up speed.
What do I not love? That I have only found 1 of our 3 phones. I did find the base with the answering machine, so that is good. Its odd just having the one phone. It makes me think about when I was a kid and we had the one phone in the kitchen with the mega long twisty cord so one could duck into a closet or go in the backyard to get some privacy, potentially clothes-lining anyone not looking where they are going. So even though we just have the one phone, at least it isn't tethered to the wall.
