I'm looking for rural internet suggestions

We just moved to a beautiful location in the Shenandoah Valley, VA, but we have limited internet options.

Any experience with satellite internet? I guess Hughes or ViaSat may be our best option

No cable internet option available

We have phone line (dsl) but it is painfully slow and not unseful as is...download speed is less than 1 mbps (0.6 to be exact). Try selling that to a household with 3 teenagers, lol

I'm currently using a cellular hotspot with download speeds varying between 4-7 mbps, but it seems to be unreliable at times, dropping connections and bad latency.

Any advice is appreciated.

rural internet problems are going away. Charter has agreed to install internet for "McLovin Timber, Bldg B" free of charge. Was going to be a few grand as residential, but my fake biz account is for free. Thanks.


So you have DSL ?
