somebody lied to ya about not being faster. a dial up modem will only run at 53k if everything is perfect. out in the country, old and possibly corroded lines can cut that down to under 19. i am very familiar with modems and how they operate, so i can say this with some knowledge. dsl if you can get it is great, and satellite is almost as good as far as speed. reliability will depend on a lot of things, including the load on the system. hughes i have found to work in some weather so far that had wild blue down. again, a lot of things go into it, but hughes has been much better so far in heavy clouds and the pouring rain we had.
it does cost more, but for me it is worth it. you know your situation, and what you can and can't afford, as well as your needs. so give hughes a call and talk to them, sure you will get some hype, but the person i talked to originally was very helpful.
