Episode 1325 (37:16)

Richard from Crystal Lake, FL

Richard also wants to know if there's a good satellite internet service. Leo says he can get satellite broadband through WildBlue, but it's not cheap and requires buying special equipment. Another option is LTE cellular service. Often times, it can be even faster than cable. There's also WISP (Wireless Internet Service Providers).

There are a number of carriers that are WISPs, or Wireless Internet Service Providers. They often use radio or microwave signals. Microwave requires line-of-sight, so he could put up a tower and get very fast internet. Satellite should be the last resort.
