A friend of mine just switched from cable modem service to the Dish satellite internet service. Apparently his neighborhood suffered from a lot of cable outages and he says the dish service is great. I asked him what the upload speed was, but he had no idea what I was talking about. He claimed that the service used sat transmission for both up and downloads. I had understood that the sat isp's used a landline for uploads. He swears there is nothing but the sat box connected to his pc. Can this be right? Anyone using this service?
