Finished view of our internet tower.
on the top?

It's a open style dish for internet. I am looking into converting to solar and will also install a wind turbine. I will probably tee off the top to add the turbine. The structure is 1 1/2" pipe schedule 40 and the guy wires are solid aluminum using turnbuckles at the base. This should be sufficient to support the turbine.
Frogs have it easy, they eat what bugs them.
US $713.00 That includes the tower materials, installation, wireless modem, and 1st month service. They had to travel from Rivas to San Juan del Sur.
We had several other quotes but GGnet was the least expensive and had the best speed at 1024k. They have pricing options for faster speeds but for what we do this should be fine. Only used it 1 day before we left but we were able to stream Netflix.
contact information for them?
If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate
This is their website info: http://www.ggnetwireless.com/ Their pricing and speed has not been updated with the latest information which is cheaper than what the site shows.
The contact person is Denis Gavarrte and his email address is: email@example.com
I miss my internet access
Okay, so I get the tower up next to the last before we leave for the US. I'm feeling pretty good about having wireless internet throughout the house. I upload a picture to my favorite blog site and answer questions, still feeling pretty good.
Then I get an email from GGNet letting me know the first months free service is ending and how would I like to pay for the service going forward, by the month or in chunks like 6 months at a time. I take a couple days to make my decision then email my response. This is where it gets a little crazy. The email bounces back to my inbox that it timed out and could not be delivered. I send it again...... same thing, so I send it to the owners direct email address and yes it happened again. So I try to go to the website........ not there.
So unless someone can tell me that GGNet is still in business I guess I have a tower (very nice I might add) and a dish and router with no internet service. Just my luck..... Hey, if anyone knows if GGNet is still in business please let me know how to contact them...
I thought I was getting closer to a connection; they are still gone from the web
and yet so far. The story of Nicaragua.
You must have internet service if the email is bouncing back.
One of the problems with letting a domain name expire is all the sharks out there looking for exactly that. GGNet may be negotiating with someone as we write these posts to get their name back.
...so that's not likely to be the problem. That traceroute can't get to it suggests that the site is down.
http://network-tools.com/default.asp?prog=trace&host=ggnetwireless.com has interesting tools for diagnosis network problems. Claro actually blocks traces, so I tried it a different way after being unable to get to a site I knew was live (this one).
The OP is back in the US if I read his posts correctly, so has access there.
Whois gives Walter Humberto Alvarez for all the other roles in the registration entry. He hasn't renewed his domain registration as of March 3rd, but that can be for all sorts of reasons. Traceroute times out in the third hop.
soluciones.seo A T gmail.com is his gmail address for all the roles. If he can't be reached there, he's in breech of most registry rules.
Recall the face of the poorest and the weakest man whom you may have seen, ask yourself if the step you contemplate is going to be of any use to him. Will he gain anything by it? Will it restore him to a control over his own life and destiny?
