I have been struggling with the connection to the internet ever since I returned from leave more than a year ago. Often there is no connection at all or the connection is constantly breaking off. My nephew Steve suggested that I look into a satellite connection. I looked on the web and most providers supplying such connections charge over $4,000 for the equipment and installation. I discovered that a Swiss family that has lived in Arusha for many years and are old friends of mine are providers of satellite internet. On contacting them, they said that they could give me used equipment for a fraction of the normal cost and the monthly cost of minimum bandwidth would be quite reasonable. Yesterday the system was installed and it works great. Now I have a good connection to post my blog, get the news and read a couple of magazines that I subscribe to.
