internet access

Post by andy_c » Thu Mar 26, 2015 11:08 am

I'm planning a week and a half trip, and hoping to do some work while I'm there- I just need internet access. Anyone have beta on a reliable internet connection (that can do video calls)?

Thanks!

In general internet access is slow in the area. People around here think broadband means the Go-Gos.

The rockhouse has pretty fast internet, but the restaurant might be a little noisy for video calls. The wifi at the Stanton library is decent.

Land of Arches, Lago Linda, or Beattyville library. Good luck.

I have used skype from Miguels before without much issue. You could probably set your tent up close enough to get a good signal if you need to be in uh privacy to do your video thing.

Thanks for the info!

Looks like libraries may be the best. Is the wifi at Miguel's ok?

Lago Linda does have a policy against video streeming. Basically, it will just depend on how many other people are trying to use it in the area

The wifi at Miguel's isn't slow per-se, but if you're there and its crowded, well lets just say you don't get a lot of internets when 150 climbers are trying to pull down pictures of sierra blaire coyle at the same time. If it's quiet the internet isn't that bad, maybe not good enough for high quality video calls, but I've definitely seen people using skype there.
