Business plan. Check eBay for account holders reselling some of their lines. The guy sent me an expensive 4G router for $45. It's working as well as it can. We had no reception up at the cabin to make something like this happen.

We had Pegasus which became DirecWay then ended up Hughes.net. We were happy with DirecWay, but Hughes changed it policy to 'Fair Access' that seriously limited download ability. We could one NOT tell how much we were downloading - until we exceeded the limit (and BAM! we were at lower than dial up speed for 24 hours). It was like driving a car without  gas gauge! And we seriously could NOT afford to be with out higher speed connection (business reasons). Lucky for us, the local one-horse telephone co. which is the ONLY land line service in our area, installed data lines and we had DSL. So we dropped Hughes like a rotten road apple.

I do know a person who has Hughes - no other option - and grinds her teeth over it often. We don't have a cell phone - just haven't any use for it - so don't have a clue about those options. It seems to me that wireless will eventually win out - mainly in city areas where density and distance isn't a problem. But in remote locations options are limited and maybe even non existent? Talking to folks in one's area would probabl be the best way to find out which will work best.

My personal motto - The Home, a peace worth fighting for.

We're done with 4G cellular data after tomorrow. I was able to convince Comcast and pay a realistic amount for getting cable out here. Now my neighbors can too. Our internet bill for last month was $155. Next month will be ~$50. Much more livable.
