In Syria, Virginia, a sign advertising rural satellite Internet
A little day trip found me in Syria, Virginia, about 10 miles from Old Rag Mountain on the east side of the Blue Ridge, and seeming rather like another world, even with men’s dorm. There was also a fall mountain festival and an inn nearby.
But there seemed to be no service from Verizon, at least on my iPhone. And I saw the sign above advertising rural satellite Internet from Exede.
In Sperryville (20 miles to the north, still just east of Shenandoah and the Blue Ridge), Verizon comes back at the 3G level.
