    I got a quote from the folks at GroundControl.com for a satellite internet connection, and I was wondering if there are any comparable products. I really like the motorized antenna, but I don't know if it's worth the $5000+ installation cost they quoted.

    I gather that GroundControl really just re-packages the HughesNet service. I haven't found any other businesses doing the same thing, but I was hoping there would be a lower priced version of the satellite installation out there somewhere.

    Thanks in advance for your help, I'm brand new to the RV world, so any tips are appreciated.

    Automatic are really nice, but they will cost a bunch. A manually aimed dish on a tripod will be much cheaper, and slightly less subject to being blocked by trees, etc. But you will have to set it up each time.
