High speed internet for snowbirds

by jwood108 / January 8, 2007 5:07 AM PST

My in-laws just purchased their first computer. They are snowbirds who spend half the year in Mass and half in Florida. I've been looking around for a good solution for them to get high sspeed internet access in both states, but can't seem to find much. Comcast in Mass will allow you to suspend service for a fee, but haven't found anything in FLA yet. Is anyone out there in a similar situation and do youhave any suggestions?

Did you try Verizon?

I see that Verizon has phone service at Massachusetts and in Florida. I use Verizon's DSL.

Could they use Verizon DSL in Massachusetts and then change it to Florida for the other 4 or 5 months.

I would figure it shouldn't be a problem with them.

Call Verizon and ask them.

Try here first

Phone numbers and other information can be found here

Hope this helps.
