The Fall season is upon us and that means hunting season is just around the corner. In the rural areas where I live it seems that hunting for wild game is just a part of everyday life. Right around mid to late October everyone starts getting their gear together, finding the right kinds of hunting stands, and picking out the perfect spot to stake out. The hunting lodge and tour guide business seem to be booming this time of year, and people flock from all over the world to these rural areas to spend a weekend enjoying nature. However all this fun and excitement comes with a cost. For the most part that cost is being completely disconnected from the outside world on account of there being no internet connection. That’s right, many of the lodges are so far out in remote areas that no terrestrial internet service can find it financially feasible to provide service that far out. Fortunately, there is extra-terrestrial internet service.
An extra-terrestrial internet connection is quite simply satellite internet. This type of connection is available almost anywhere in the United States, and can provide comparable speeds to DSL service. By having this type of accessibility during these remote hunting expeditions people can stay connected regardless of where they are wondering off to. This is an extremely important feature for the lodges to offer as some of their customers are top executives of some of the largest companies in the world. Having cell phone coverage and an internet connection almost everywhere they go is almost a necessity in case of emergencies.
So if you happen to be one of these individuals gearing up for a new hunting expedition this season make sure you call the lodge up first to ensure they have their satellite internet connection up and running before you get there.
