It is delivered to your house through your already existing telephone line.
jamadots_internet's insight:

Probably the best write-up we've seen on this subject and we've filtered through plenty. One of the things we like best is the author's suggestion that you chose a local provider, if available and at all possible. Some things to keep in mind when comparing jamadots to other providers:

 

1) Jamadots high-speed internet is a local provider that has been in continuous operation in Michigan's U.P. since 1877, the year the first phone lines were installed at Ontonagon County Telephone Company (OCTC), our western UP company. OCTC was the first and is the oldest telephone company in Michigan. We know a thing or two about communications!

 

2) We offer broadband speeds up to 25 Mb (residential) and 30 Mb (business) across most of our service territories. These areas include CCTC (Brimley, MI), HTC (Munising, MI), MTC (Watton, MI), and OCTC (Ontonagon, MI). We are able to provide 50 MB internet in our Munising area. (Don't be fooled by the Cable Guys advertising hypes and misleading  claims suggesting that they are ?-x's faster.)

 

3) We pride ourselves on taking care of our customers and building relationships within the communities we serve. In fact, you'll often see our employees on a daily basis in and around town. We believe that the core of our success comes from the long-term relationships we have with many of our customers. 

 

4) Our local team of employees will generally be able to install or respond to service concerns within hours, not weeks (like the non-local Cable Guy ISPs).

 

5) We have spent a great amount of time focusing on providing our customers with exceptional value. While we may not always be able to advertise the lowest, short-term promotional offer, the long-term standard rates we have developed are by far the best value (quality/quantity/price) you'll find. In fact, as an example, we've recently scaled back our business pricing significantly to reflect even greater value to those that invest so much into furthering the economic development of the Upper Peninsula.

 

We welcome your calls, emails, messages, and office visits and look forward to speaking with those who have yet to chose us as their internet service provider. Contact your local office to learn more about what makes jamadots internet the best choice in ISP's in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.
