Don't have one, but used to install them

Canopy is meh, expedience is quite decent, and if you have wimax in your area yet, it's great.

Oh hell yes it's better than dial up. No questions there. I thought you were comparing it to DSL.. Where canopy is not quite as good, expedience is as good/sometimes worse/sometimes better..

If you've got dial up, call xplornet now
