Hi, I am a light user of internet but need it for on-line course, writing and surfing the web. I recently ended services with Charter Communications. I asked to remove TV option and reduce service to internet only. The cost for service rose quickly. Talking to a sales rep made it more confusing so I said let's cancel for now.
Well, it was a huffy decision and in researching my address, there are no other companies offering internet connectivity. Earthlink and Verizon do not service my address. In researching satelite options, majority of reviews were overwhelmingly negative.
I stopped in the local Charter Spectrum store and dropped off the rented equipment. The sales rep was great to talk to and encouraged me to return at the end of this month for a new promotion. She offered connectivity, internet only at $40 for one year. But, after expiration the cost will rise to $75 per month. I cancelled TV hoping to start watching programming via a Roku device. The costs are more reasonable and for the amount of TV I watch, it may be best for me.
I am something of a luddite with internet and technology. Is there no other option for connectivity? My laptop and iPhone of course run well on wifi when it is available. But, the public library is a long walk and has limited hours if I want to go online. I am not friendly enough with any neighbors to ask to share a wifi signal.
Any ideas? I keep thinking I just need a little device that connects to the laptop that can pick up a wifi or connectivity signal. But, that may only be wishful thinking.
Help if you can.
