View Full Version : Is this service any good?
I just found out this new ISP Prominet is going to be offering a new highspeed 2 way wireless internet access in my area. The price of the package that I was most interested in is 1000/256 for $80/month. What whould that be translated in KB/sec, also does anyone know the pros/cons of a wireless service of this nature, and also the fact that its wireless would this effect PING times in games adversely like a satelite access would?
the addy is www.prominetinc.com

1000/256 kb per sec = 125/32 KB per sec. $80 per month for speeds like that is pretty expensive. If that is your only alternative and it is really important to you, than you have your answer.
CNET did a nice review recently on fixed wireless. You can view it here:
I guess its not that good then since currently I have adelphia Powerlink. I thought wireless was non bandwidth sharing but the article pointed me otherwise.
Is that KBytes or KBits ?
KB = KiloBytes
kb = Kilobits (notice the lower case letters !)
If its for KB then its a good price, if its kb then is hella expensive.
Expect to pay around $30/month for ADSL service with 1000/120 kb/s
