Just heard that the province is going to hire companies to provide high speed internet access to rural parts of the province. Thank God! At our cottage, there is no such access available. We are lucky to have cell phones working down there.
This summer, I took the laptop to the cottage. Hooked it up to my BlackBerry, using the latter device as a tethered modem. This process is crazy expensive, though, so it is not something one wants to use very often. Just in emergencies.
I'll have to find a way to talk Patricia into getting it hooked up at the cottage when it becomes available.
