Day #496 Some Advice, Please?

I’m getting fed up with my WiFi setup. My house is on the back side of Hog Mountain. Not on the top, mind you, but down a ways, and the land behind me slopes up away from the stream, leaving me in a dip. 
People who live farther up the street from me get a fairly good WiFi signal. I don’t.
I keep getting ads about bundles and packages -- all of them touting that not only will I get high speed internet service, but my TV will never look better. Trouble is, I don’t have a TV, don’t want one, and don’t intend to pay for that kind of service when I don’t need it.
Does anybody have some really good advice about how to get good, dependable WiFi service all by itself? Something that will work here on the back side of the mountain?

Hi there! OK, I called Billy at home and he said to tell you the following:
Contact your phone company and see if they provide internet service specifically "DSL". If they do and if you get that service, you can then go to any electronics store and buy a 'wireless router'. The 'DSL plug' the phone company will provide you will plug into the 'router' and that will give you your own personal WiFi connection. Lord, but I hope you understood that. I just hung up with him and he said that should do it. Let me know .... hugs!

Okay, I'm going to print this out and take it to the phone store to see what they say.

Thank you, and a big thanks to Billy as well!
