In 1999, satellite internet access was introduced as part of our internet technology offerings.

In 2003, B&J Computers, Inc. proposed wireless DSL internet access to its clients.  This new service replaced satellite access since, for B&J’s customers, it is
1. faster and more user friendly than telephone dial-up,
2. less expensive per month, costing B&J clients a minimum of 25% less per month than comparable monthly satellite internet access rates plus no “cap” on bandwidth, a common problem for satellite internet access users,
3. up to 66% faster on the “up-load” (back-haul) than satellite internet access.092013 design
