You really only have 2 choices Embarq (DSL telephone) or Comcast (cable). Do a search on this subject plenty of prior discussion.

I understand there is wi fi service at some of the regional rec centers. If so, does this work well? :dontknow:

Ask handie -- seemed to work for him. I think there's a time limit of something like an hour, though. If you have a neighbor who has wifi and is unsecured, you can always piggy back them (just don't let them know -- it goes over like a ton of bricks).

I sat in luxury at Colony Cottage and latched on to their WIFI by entering my Village ID and pin number, worked wonderfull. The host said its on till the time he leaves at 10PM and maybe all night. You probably can get a usable signal sitting on the bench on the porch after hours. :bigthumbsup:

As Handie said if you have a laptop with wifi you can go to any reg rec ctr and get on with golf ID and password, also library on 466 and try at home for the heck of it as red said.

Thanks for all the suggestions, Chat Friends! Mr. Travelstiles and I will be arriving at TV tomorrow afternoon to look at some homes, set up a PO Box, and arrange for a storage facility for our furniture until we buy.
I will definitely bring along my laptop so I can log on and keep in touch with my new TV friends - you guys are the best :#1:

I'm almost positive you can. Last year when we were renting I used the computers at the Savannah Center -- not wifi, but I still needed to sign in with my id number. That should be the same id you'd use with wireless since it is really all the same network.

Last September, We visited TV for two weeks. With the visitors I.D. I was allowed to use the PCs in the Savannah center. My wife used our lap top in the lobby to pay our bills on-line.
