I am looking to move and the house we want to buy is in the mountains and is unable to get DSL or Cable. I've checked into internet over Satelite and am in the process of looking into Wireless and also seeing if Bell South offers ISDN to this location. I work out of my house and use Vonage for my business phone and fax. I'm not sure if Satelite will work, tech support was pretty fuzzy on it and I don't know if wireless or ISDN will work. I'm looking for any possible solutions, because if I can't use Voip then I'm not buying the house. Does anyone use Vonage with any of these kind of ISP's and what is the result?

People are working on the satellite solution, but for now you would experience some delay time over satellite. I plan on traveling to Alabama to visit the folks during the holidays. My sister has satellite internet so I am going to take my PAP2 and check this out.

It sounds like you are too far away from the CO for DSL. So that solution may never come.

I suspect ISDN would be fairly expensive. Hopefully you will have other uses that would justify the cost.

When I lived in North Carolina (and I was extremely rural) there was a company that offered internet over microwave. It seemed fairly reliable. But I cannot say how Voip would work and who knows what the chances are for that being offered where you are looking. But it is possible.

Good luck. I would die without a high speed connection. It is highly addictive.

It just happens that we are moving to Waynesville NC and I did speak to a company today that offers the Microwave and said the upload and download is 1.5mg

Well as long as the latency is not too much with the microwave internet you should be good to go. Im sure that satellite is a no go with such high latency. I beleive microwave is what the local news trucks use to beam their signal back to the station. Doesnt seem like as much delay with that over satellite when your watching the news.

Best of luck with it.

yes satellite has latency that is extremely hard to overcome - the reason is physics - it takes a quarter second for the signal to get up to the satellite, and a quarter second back down,(you can't change the speed of light...or can you.......) then the signal has to get processed on the terrestrial network. You are talking about some serious latency times now. I have talked to some people in alaska using the service and it was delayed, but not too bad. Most of the time though, the delay couple with the packet loss will make it unusuable.

Microwave sounds better though, the signal will be going to a tower probably only a dozen miles away or so, instead of a satellite a couple thousand miles away.

I've got a "wireless last mile" setup that uses 802.11. It seems to work well with Voip, when it's working. There's a large stand of trees between me and the base station that probably reduces signal strength. It should get better when the leaves drop.

Speaking to the fellow who actually installed the base station, he was surprised that I was gettting such good service at my location (not exactly in the area they planned to cover). I currently get better than 1.5Mb down (and sometimes as much as 3 Mb), and this evening I'm getting better than 400Kb up. However, the quality of service varies from 20% to no better than 50%. The ISP is pretty stupid about a lot of things, and I'm hoping that ClearWire sets up to cover this area (of course, if they do, my cell phone will probably work here too, so I won't have much need for Vonage anymore, but that's another show).

Despite the odd setup, Vonage seems to work well, and since I've moved the RT31P2 to a cooler loctation, I no longer get dropped calls. I'd say that if a wireless solution is available at your mountain home, you should be all set!
