Need reasonable internet speeds in country

Any way to get a reasonable internet bandwidth in the country. No cable company is going to run wires beyond the edge of town. Can wi-fi do it? Any suggestions?

There is a local broadband company here.

I haven't heard of anybody liking Hughes net.

Some places have direct line of sight wireless broadband, but my experience with the small company that provides it here in my area left something to be desired in terms of reliability. It was a big step up from dial up though.

I've also tried satellite (HughesNet). It was faster and more reliable than LOS wireless, but it had issues in bad weather and the latency issues prevent any kind of interactive applications (like gaming or voice over IP). If you don't need it for these types of applications, satellite is pretty good. It's pretty expensive though. I was paying $80 a month for service that was inferior (both in speed and especially latency) to the DSL that city folks were getting for $30 a month.

Check with your phone company to see if they have DSL in your area. It took a while, but my phone company eventually came through and I'm much happier with it (even though it's a really slow version of DSL, 1.5Mbps down) than I was with either of the other alternatives I listed.

If you don't use a lot of data Verizon lte might be a option

Either you can get a DSL company or you are stuck with Satellite bandwidth which expensive and sucks and you are at the mercy of the weather. Best bet.....check your bandwidth through your cell phone company.

My parents have a Verizon Jetpack.

3g. Good connection, fast. Have had 10 devices at once when all the family are around.

Price is OK. Not for full time surfing/gaming.
It was the best option.


Local wifi did not work-damn curving of the earth.

Some places that might work.

My Grandpa lives out in a dead spot and sometimes I can call him 15 times before he gets the call.

I stayed there for awhile when I first got stuck here and used on of those of those Virgin Mobile sticks. Mixed results at times, but not altogether awful.

My parents have WiFi internet, also called WISP. It sucks pretty hard, but it's a far better option than satellite, which has long latency and data caps.
