If you have ANY other choice, stay away from Wild Blue!

My experience with them is that they have over sold the bandwidth they 
have and if frequently less than dial up speed. Their customer service 
is non-existent. When you get their "Free" installation it's at the whim 
of the installer what normal is and only normal installations are 
covered. Our "Free" installation cost us an extra $500. Cutting off the 
service was a nightmare and we owed them money because our original 
commitment wasn't met.

That was just our experience but check out the blogs at DSL reports. A 
lot of people have the same issues.
