In what has to be the fastest, promptest install ever, the cable company showed up at the promised time and got us Internet within an hour. From our first phone call until working Internet, 26 hours spanned. They said they would show up this afternoon, and they came about 1 PM. Honestly, I've never had that kind of honesty and service in a cable company, certainly not in the USA.

When we first arrived in Honduras, 9.9 years ago, I had a deal with my old boss. I would continue working for him telecommuting from Honduras, for a 50% pay cut. All that I had to do was find Internet. I spoke with several companies, many times each. They told me it would cost near $2000 to install a satellite system. Realizing that I was losing about $3K monthly, I was more than willing to pay. Nobody came, even when appointments were made. I lost the job.

Technology companies here have really come a long way.

I know some of you were praying for us on this week of Thanksgiving. I'm thankful to keep my job, thank God.
