Can anyone tell me anything about wireless internet, as in, we have wireless as there are no optical cables out here, ans we get a reasonable signal strength with a small magnetic based antenna on the desk, about 3-4 bars. BUT we seem to have no data exchange, like you cant watch youtube, takes 2 days to download a movie from itunes etc.
I have spoken to telstra, most dont understand english, or dont want to, no one can give me a direct answer. I have looked into an outside antenna, a yagi 10dBi gain, but I dont want to outlay another $100 until I can find out if it is going to make any difference. We have been putting up with this crap from telstra for almost 4 years now, and I have about had a gut full !
I also looked into satellite, but at $20 a month more for 2GB less, and have been told by a few that in this overcast weather the signal can drop in and out as well. With no work to start here within the next 3 years on the NBN rollout, NBN wwill be outdated before we get it, well actually it is old technology from the states now ! Any input would be helpful, thanks in advance guys and girls.
