Good luck with high speed in this town. Cable (CMA) is wired only in certain areas of town, so it depends on where you reside. Air Internet & Keyon are providers here but both are SO bogged down they can't handle any other subscribers satisfactorily. Air Internet at least has a local office to complain at, Keyon doesn't. Wild Blue isn't offering anymore service, and AT&T is still in their experimental stage and also with location limitations. Welcome to the 19th Century!

I would think wireless would be the way to go. Lots of open access to the heavens...

KeyOn is testing a new WiMax system in Pahrump shortly, and if the test is successful, it will allow for greater throughput speeds and more reliable service.

We just got DSL by AT&T....What a difference over dial-up. Since we had an extra phone line before, the new DSL can be used WITHOUT affecting incoming calls, thereby eliminating the need for a second line. The cost savings for the second line pays for DSL.

I've never had to have a second line for DSL. There should be a filter that AT&T provides. You plug you PC cat cable into the filter and then into the phone socket. DSL should not affect incoming calls.

can you tell me if this internet express package for 25.00 a month by AT&T, the best they can offer for Pahrump will run videos and movies with out stopping and rebuffing all the time, or does anyone know of a service for the south side that does. Ezznet is good for going to web sites but won't run videos.

At&t will not run videos most of the time and their 25.00 plan is no better than the entry level. We have the express plan and it will run at 320kbps but that's it.... Not worth the extra 5.00 a month if you ask me! I'm looking at cma at the moment..
Hope it's better than at&t....

wildblue by at&t is a scam, they get you to buy there sat system 300 bucks or so then 29 a month, the first month they tell you your over your band width so they slow you down to slower than dial up,Ah but you can up grade to 79 a month for more then the first month geuss what your over your band width, so you can upgrade to another for more money. the kicker is you sign a two year contract with them. thinking you have as good as wimax or so they tell you,, scam scam

keyon will get 1.5 if you are pointed at the correct tower and it depends on the time of day. The tower we were originally pointed at was very overloaded and we got a little better than dial up. I complained and they put up a dish (vs, a flat antenna) and pointed it at a different tower so most of the time we get 1.5 or better. Sometimes well over 2.3.
I miss AT&T wimax though.

Don't know what this means but this is what Ezznet says this is what their residential customers get ... 256 up 256 down with bursting speeds of 1000 up-down. What ever it means I can't watch a video on any news web site.
