I think my expenses are pretty low but it is always good to take another look at them. I did a little more research in to internet costs and this is what I found:
-Wireless Internet in my area costs $250 for the antenna and $59 per month. Quite expensive. They say it is the fastest speed available. I should hope so for that price.
-The neighbor who said she got free wireless internet from the school moved away many years ago so I don't think that is an option any more.
-The neighbor next to my rental house gets free wireless internet from the school next door but where my RV is located is not near a school.
-Free internet is available at the airport, the many libraries around town and the casinos. All of those are more than 15 miles away. If I was really desperate I would go to the library once a week. It's a 25 minute drive though. Not really practical for every day use.
-Many coffee shops and cafes have free wireless but you are supposed to be a patron. That would get very expensive.
-Verizon offers wireless internet. $50 for their modem card thingy but it is usually free with a contract. $40 a month for 50MB. 25 cents a MB after that. $60 a month for 5GB. Many taxes and fees apply. Those would probably add another $10 per month like they do to my phone bill.
I've come to the conclusion that my $38 Qwest internet service is the cheapest option for what I need.
