Currently we offer 2 broadcast streams. One for modem users and the other for broadband users.

We are trying to determine if we should continue or reduce the number of connections to our modem stream.

The renewal fee for the modem broadcast is substantial and for the number of users we have we want to make sure it is something our listeners want!

I have a DSL modem - but I usually connect to the radio under the broadband connection.

Do you mean actually the old 56k modem?

I am not a computer wiz - so maybe DSL and Broadband are pretty much the same thing.

Expand my knowledge when you get a chance.

Thanks thumbs_up.gif

Yes, DSL and broadband are the same.

Modem would be the dial up phone way of connecting.

DSL all the way smile.gif
Monarch: A DSL 'modem' isn't really a modem. It's better termed as a bridge, since it does nothing to 'mo'dulate or 'dem'odulate an analog stream. It's all digital with broadband.

Currently, I connect via a friend's system since my home is jus over 3000 feet outside the dsl ange but I am hoping oon to install a highspeed wireless solution. That way I can get my personal website up and running as well as my personal chef/catering business site up as well.

you can go for cable
the downside is a given users share a given bandwidth
if some of them are using bit torrent, then the rest will have trouble
can your area use T-Mobile?
T-Mobile will activate EDGE someday next year, provides up to 240k (usually 100-140k), which is enough for regular usage

I use a GPRS connection. Most of my listening is at work, and the network firewall blocks all streaming through the corporate broadband connection, so I have to provide my connection. Hence, my listening is via an ipaq 2215, with an Audiovox data card through TMobile GPRS. I am thinking about upgrading to a Sprint Vision connection in the next month or so.

He wouldn't want cable with those uses in mind, specially not if he's wanting to run a business from it. Cable has a nice downstream, but the upstream for thise services sucks. About the same as a 56k modem as I recall. You'd want at *least* low end DSL, and if he has any success at all, that won't do the job for long

I've looked into cable but the local carrier will not come out to our area due to the low population density. They require a certain number of houses per mile and our area is very rural with maybe 5 houses per mile, well below their minimum. Also, from what I understand, cable up speed is negligable at best.
The wireless solution I am looking into uses the 5 GHz range, offers both up and down speeds of 3072kbps and also offers static ip for no extra charge. Granted, it is an initial 199 dollar setup fee and 59 per month but that includes the antenna, 214/7 support, installation, 10 mailboxes, webspace (though I'll have my own server), router, etc.
Really not a bad deal since I won't have to purchase extra stuff if I decide to throw my other 2 systems on it as well. Just plug the NICs into the router ports and off we go.

One thing I should state is that I was on Dial-up when I found this station. One of the things I liked about it at the time was that I could keep up with the stream on my dial-up!
