Looks like we’re getting DSL at home

Seems our telephone provider is now offering DSL internet connections in the village 😀 Very excited, as the only other option for an internet service involved about $400 on equipment + connection charges on a satellite link through GCI, then $100 a month for the service with a 3Gb/month limit. Although the Unicom Alaska connection will still only be 256k/64k, it’s $50 a month, has no bandwidth or usage restrictions, and includes free setup + connection via the engineer in the village (was easier to let them do it than explain what I used to do in England…). Works with the Mac too. Hopefully the equipment will be through within the next week or two and I won’t have to pack everything up and hike to school to use the internet anymore!
