Verizon DSL vs Comcast Cable

   The terain just doesn't cooperate, and every leaf that comes out
   every spring is 12 Decibels of lost signal. There's a reason that
   satellites work: no trees in the way, and a valid line-of-sight
   path. It's the same reason MDS doesn't.

I wish satellites worked.  We currently can't get HD from DirecTV
because of trees in the way.  We can get the regular signal; hopefully
that won't die when the trees leaf out.
