Something To Seriously Consider

If you love your high speed DSL or digital internet access you are getting in the States, you may seriously want to factor that into your decision to come to Kwaj.

We do not have high speed internet, we have dial-up for home users. There is some wireless access available in a few places but all of it is transmitted across the same satellite and I just have to say, Internet over satellite leaves a lot to be desired.

Up to this point, it didn't seem like that big of a deal but I spent over an hour last night editing all of the photos I wanted to post so that it wouldn't take 8 years for them to upload and I couldn't get one to upload to save my life. This is happening more and more it seems.

You want to know the worst part? I work directly with the Internet as part of my job function here and there just isn't anything (at this time) that can be done about it. There are all kinds of plans in the works for making some drastic changes but everything, I mean everything takes a very long time to come to fruition out here.

So, depending on how important Internet access is to you, you may just keep this in mind if you are planning to come to Kwaj.
