Internet connections

Does ANYONE consistantly get decent (speed) service in ?Kingsland-Marble Falls area. I've tried all (?) the older ones and am not surprised they're no longer around. A neighbor JUST went on Skybeam. (I believe they acquired the older ones). A morning of searches gave literally hundreds of very unhappy people all over Colorado and Texas. The local cable company won't cross 1431 North of it) (Who approved their franchise?)

I live way outside the city limits, and finally gave in and got satellite internet. I'm using HughesNet, for about $55 a month, at a faster speed than the fastest Northland offers in town. I can recommend it. I haven't had any problems.

I'm on WildBlue and don't care for it. Too slow on a good day, and shuts down in rain. I've called out about every local company I can think of, but nobody can hit their tower from my house. Wish there were an alternative.

Zeecon ISP

I've used Zeecon for almost 2 yrs.
I live 20 miles East of Marble Falls.
No complaints only praise from this customer.
If their system is down,(which doesn't happen often)
They email with apology and explanation.
So far our surfing speeds have been perfect.
We can stream movies, download stuff with no problems.
You can watch movies on different computers, or
Whatever without interruption.
We had Wildblue, the speed was slow as a snail compared
To Zeecon.
And we pay less per month.
$57.58 every month.
No Contract to sign.
They don't have to make people sign a contract because customers will stay for the amazing service.

This has been my personal experience.
Zeecon Wireless Internet
Local call : 798-9388

Zeecon came out. They were one of the outfits that could not hit a tower from my house. Huge trees are a mixed blessing.

I thought I would update my praise for Zeecon.
Being faithful about paying my bills to them for
Over Two years now, they have not been faithful about consistent
Good service.
I started noticing my internet speed going from slow
To "unable to connect". This is happening more and
More as the year goes by.
Calling costumer service hasn't helped.
They always conclude that it's a problem
With our equipment or settings.
We even bought a new router.
I believe we have been throttled down.
Now I am lucky if I can check email
Much less stream a movie.
I have cancelled Netflix because my internet
Isn't working most of the time.
Right now I am using my cell phone data
Plan to visit this site.
Zeecon is no longer recommended.

Updates on Cable Service

Okay, I have had it with Northland. I've been told to stay way from Dish...Are there any good services that provide a bundle of TV, Internet and Phone in Marble Falls?

My northland disgust was so bad lately I would have gone with anyone else but the options seem limited. Once they got someone out to fix some alleyway part it's fine again but it took almost a month (that backed up) to get service. You DO realize that a plumber will come out anytime night or day and all we get is "well it will be 3 to 4 weeks!!???" BAD BaD BAD customer service. So...Zeecon or this "Hughes" net service (is that linked to Direct TV?). We have Dish.

We have Zeecon, but only Internet. We've never paid for TV, so can't help on that.

Unhappy

The republican debate was on Fox Business News (402 on Northland Cable) You have to have a box with high def. and pay extra to get it. Just like the Longhorn Channel and several other sports channels.
