"Ear Buds" made these portable headphones which seals out external noise from your ear. They sounded great, but were also around $130.

Starband.net is a satellite internet service and is offering 500K bandwidth for around $49 per month. You have to buy the satellite and equipment which goes for around $300 (used), but if you live where no cable or DSL service is available this probably isn't to bad deal.

I don't have cable or anything like that here and I'd be more than willing to pay $49 for that.

Just remember you have to purchase the equipment also. The Starband people said it can run around $300 for used.

I can mail you a couple of brochures I picked up if you would like some more info on them.

Yeah, I could save up for the purchase fee. The monthly thing wouldn't be a problem if I was able to get it.

Do they have a website or anything?
