Ok...I'm just wondering this because my fragile mind had a brief moment where it questioned the viability of several things.....you'll see what I mean in a moment.
So, you have 5 webcams. Each of these webcams must be connected to the web to be of ANY use at all...
However, it occured to me that getting internet service at 6,288 feet where there are no other occupants is either incredibly expensive (at least for the initial setup) or incredibly difficult to maintain (in the case of satellite).
Here's how the thoughts played out in my head.
*DSL - 18,000 foot maximum distance from the CO - considering EVERYTHING (elevation, distance from any noteable populated area, additional distance for cable placement) I doubt that you're using any flavor of DSL.
*Cable - More likely, but again the idea of installing poles and cables to one location at the top of a mountain seems incredibly expensive.
*Satellite - I dont personally use a satellite for net access, but I understand they're similar to those used for TV service. I cant imagine that a satellite could stay pointed at the correct location in 85+ MPH winds (at least not with the garbage included in the installation kits that these dishs come with).
So, I suppose my question is, HOW are you getting internet service to the top o' the mountain?
Thats it...anyone with knowledge or insight, your reply would settle this issue in my mind, and I'd appreciate that.
