Default Dishnet

Does anyone have any experience with it? I have windstream but do not like it...period.

I don't have the options of much of anything else other than roadrunner/twc, but I have no clue if I can have dish and roadrunner. I live in Lexington.

Thanks

Default Re: Dishnet

I don't have dishnet but I haven't heard anything positive about it. I am pretty sure they have bandwidth caps you have to deal with, so once you've reached your alloted amount you are screwed. If all you do is serf the web and email it might be an option, but if you do any kind of streaming it will eat through it quick.

I live in the Lexington area as well and had Windstream for a long time. They have been having problems in the area for a while and are trying to upgrade their infrastructure. I finally got tired of the slow speeds and the inconsitency and switched to TW/RR. I have DISH for my tv. The only problem I have with having DISH for tv and TW/RR for internet is that I can't get ESPN 3 or the Watch ESPN App.

Default Re: Dishnet

Dishnet is pretty much reserved for those in rural areas without any other form of high speed available. Think you would be pretty disappointed.
