Offline for uncertain time

#1 Post by adrian_broher »


due the fact that I'm living on the countryside I am a customer of some small provider that provides its service by WiMAX. Today I received a letter stating that the company behind it discontinues its service 'soon' because of insolvency. Until I have some alternative means of accessing the internet (my workplace doesn't like private internet correspondence) which will take some time as I expect from the provider user service here I will stop contributing to the project. Good luck with the release and see you soon.

Good luck with it. Hope you will work something out quickly.

May not be the best of options but if you have a landline at least there's always dialup, can at least get you back and is good for some stuff.

Satellite might be another option, though you get a lag time for the signal to go up to the satellite then back down to earth.

Or using a cell/smart phone as the modem might also be an option.

Fixed point wireless (if available in your area).

Just some ideas anyways.

Is a good starting point for finding options.
