    I was just looking at traffic logs and was amazed to still see 'dial up' in the chart. What do you use to connect?

    Satellite. Slow satellite. It's the only thing you can get in the middle of the desert! Unreliable satellite, damn sunspots!

    0.16 Mbps download speed
    0.064 Mbps upload speed

    Yeah, I don't watch much youtube!

    Have you tried Starband Communications, MinuteMan? Or their Parent, SpaceNet Communications....
    Average should be at least Triple that... I am running two of their Links, here, with good success.

    I know that Starband is used in Africa, as Momma used multiple Systems there, when she was deployed with DRs w/o Boarders, both times.....
