If you go to an outlying area, I highly recommend that you contact IonSky:
They do 802.11b, and I have an installation that spans 4 miles and provides
1M down and 256 up. I moved to Coal Creek Canyon from Broomfield in July.
I had DSL for three years through Speakeasy and I have to say, the connection
through IonSky is actually *better* than my old DSL line! They will do a free
site survey to see if you are eligible.
I use my home machines remotely all day, 5dpw. I have yet to experience a
single hiccup. I am truly amazed :)
