I'm new in town (moved in from Vegas, but don't hold that against me)... I'm on the far SE side of town and AT&T is telling me there is no service at my house. I'm loathed to go to HughesNet (although they are running a deal for three months and reduced install fees, which is decent)because of the cost. Having read whats been posted here, perhaps biting the bullet and going with Satelite is the only way to keep my sanity?

The main difference I have had with Keyon since they went to wimax is that I don't have my connection changing speeds during the day anymore. I stay at the same speed no matter the time of day now. Still is pretty meh though overall

SO..........bottom line, happier or not ? worth the extra price or not ? I need to do something because this stinks as it is.

I am not paying extra as I did not increase the speed they just put me on wimax thats all. I diden't see a point in increasing the speed as I am not playing an mmo anymore. It might be worth it. Regular speed wimax is more stable and that's all I can say for sure

Stratmn69, it now says your only 50 miles from the Las Vegas server. Perhaps Keyon is now routing their Wimax through a closer server. Can you do another ping test ( pingtest.net ), please? Thanks!

I just got at&t dsl installed today and it works ok so far, of course its slower than the internet I had in Ca. but slow is better than none if you ask me.

Just as an FYI- I talked to Keyon and explained that they would need to convince me to go with them, as they're notorious for being, well, crap. I was told, "The new Wimax server and equipment is dramatically differant than the older and out of date equipment currently being used". I was also assured that I will not pay for installation if the line of sight is not high enough in bandwidth for the the speed I am paying for... they install on the 15th, so stay tuned. It was my only options, with no AT&T service, and satelite wanting waaay too much to even START service, let alone what they charge for a decent speed per month. We shall see.

One way to look at it is the more that sign up for wimax the less on my tower using old school.

don't bother getting 4 g. its fast for maybe 25% of the day. its horrible the rest of the time. It quits working completely for probably 2 hrs everyday total. I constantly get dropped from online games because the service just quits.

Don't know what happened sat. my att internet was down for about 2hrs, called them and of course went through their crap and it still did not come back on, then they told me I needed a new modem, so just left the system on and forgot about it. an hour later I noticed the light was solid green, tried the internet and man the speed was back and things have been working great and they said no one was working on internet services in this area they are all up in the reno area...go figure

We, too, are on he far SE side.(Very close to the Chicken Ranch). We use an ATT air card with a router. Most of the time we get decent speed. Cost is $60 a month with a 5G limit. I'm considering the Virgin Mobile broadband someone else mentioned only because it's unlimited. 5G gets used up pretty quickly if you download TV shows or video. I'd be interested to hear from anyone else who may have tried it. My concern is it only works with Sprint towers of which there are none in Pahrump. Their site does, however, show coverage here.

Virgin Mobil MIFi works good. 150 for the modem and 40/ month no contract unlimited internet. Works on nextel and sprint towers. You can run up to 5 computers without even connecting them. Walmart sells the unit and the virgin mobil 40 dollar card.
