What It Takes To Get Any Kind of Broadband In Kurtistown, Hawai‘i

I’ve documented our issues with getting broadband connectivity in our area previously. We finally got decent connectivity courtesy of Advanced Wireless Systems today, and are getting between 500kbps and 1.5mbsp per second both downstream and upstream. For the record that is a 27′ antenna on top of our roof, which is about 12′ tall. With five individuals and six computers in use simultaneously, I can’t tell you how happy we are right now. Installation was $600 and it’s $50 per month, but all in all the best money I’ve spent in a long time.
