    Due to not having a landline, is it possible to get any sort of wireless internet?

    I've read about these 'hotspots' but are they just like plug in sites and not transmitters??? there is one thats a mile away from me but not sure how it works.


    So, any way of getting internet without landline please anyone????

    Yes, but it is all dependent on where you live....And I mean exactly where you live, so unless you want to make that public I do not think anyone can help you out....

    there are a few options available, but not sure if there's anything in the Cornwall area... there's a few guys on here using wireless internet providers, can't remember who, but you should hget some feedback if you wait a while.

    I used to use Tele2 (wireless).

    They put a small microwave dish on the side of my house that pointed Hillingdon Hospital, a couple of miles away. All very cozy n neat. And no, i didn't get any interuption in bad weather etc.

    The reason I quit them? Coz i moved to a new house that could get Telewest, other than that they *were* very good. No idea what they are like now though.
