Internet is dragging today...

It may be because some clouds and the makings of what could be a nice little storm have started rolling in, but the connection on my phone is now what it usually is. This is only a big deal because my phone is my sole internet provider, sometimes I use the browser on the actual phone- but more often than not I use my phone as a hotspot so that I can be online on my tablet, the desktop or the old phone which is slightly easier to type longer things on. It is taking forever to load anything, and it is even making commenting on other writer's posts a wee bit of a headache. Ah well maybe it will pick back up. It was doing okay this morning.

@thislittlepennyearns That's the best way to do it, if the cell phone plan is really cheaper. We don't have much choice here either; Really the only reason why I got HughesNet was because when Obama first got into office, he had a subsidy for rural internet provider, so I have a cheaper rate than usual. There's no other "high-speed" option in this area that is affordable.

@connierebel Hughes Net is the only one that is really available here. I have heard some horror stories about them, but if it works for you thats good. I am happy with what I have, even if it means that I can't use netflix right now, which is a little sad. but there are worse things.

Something is going on here too. My writing site says my account is "frozen", so I emailed support around 930a. Have not heard back from them yet. They usually respond quickly, particularly since I told them I have a project due soon.
