Butch, I'd never paid attention to when it slowed down, but just now it slowed to a crawl while the microwave was on.

A couple of things that are positive about pacificanet. When you need any support, you talk with a local tech in the 650 area code. I like that there is no contract and you can up or down your level of service (and cost) or terminate at any time. I do upload videos and FTP files with no problems on the medium-level rate. Their email server is not the best, but there are so many free email accounts for photo and video. Overall, I am pleased with the service.

I have been using Pacificanet sine the beginning. I was a beta tester. While there have been a few reception issues in my neighborhood here and there, overall the service is great. One warning, it does slow down considerably when using the microwave or if a neighbor is using one. No joke.

I don't think reception should be a problem. They've got good coverage. The main issue is speed. I used PacificaNet for a while, but Comcast cable was much faster. This really matters only if you're downloading or uploading huge files. If you're just emailing and web surfing, the upload and download speeds are kinda irrelevant. If speed is important, find a neighbor with PacificaNet, have them go to a speed test site (there's lots of 'em), and see how fast they are. Then have anybody with cable Internet do the same test.

Walk around and ask your neighbors. Plus you should see the relay modems on the light poles. Go on the web and see the locations.

I've been using it for a couple years. Never have any problems. It's fast, reliable, and relatively inexpensive. Anyone who doesn't sign up has to be a masochist.

Any comments from anybody using this service? I am considering it, but I hope to get some informed input before I commit any time or money. I am in East Sharp Park, so anyone with knowledge about the reception in this part of town would help me make the best decision. Thank you.
