    Times have moved on and its nowhere near as painful Fast broadband for rural locations | ToowayDirect
    The price seems reasonable too.
    You could look at WISP options in your area, or if you have friends or family within line of site you could consider 5ghz P2P.
    Install cable or Infinity at the remote location then beam it back to you by P2P wireless.
    I have had 180Mbps over a 9 mile link using Ubiquiti Nanostations.
    Hills on all sides so that rules out line of sight and explains why no mobile phone signals are available.

    I've been looking at Tooway from various providers and while it's not a viable option for most would be a vast improvement for me.
    I've been looking at the experience of people in a similar situation who have had recent installs on the forums on ThinkBroadband.
    It seems very positive if you can accept the latency. The Ofcom report gives positive conclusions on upload/download and video streaming which are my main uses.

    it was a Tooway that I wasted 10+ Hrs on. it was supposed to be a transportable but the BASE was so diffiuclt to level and stabalise that doing the alignment was a nightmare, and even when we had the base level and solid we struggled to get a lock.

    3G is much better, if needbe get a decent antenna on it and you will get good downloads.

    One of my customers text me at the weekend overjoyed at her new satellite connection, she can now stream cat and fail videos without buffering from YouTube.

    22Mb/s she said she was getting. I can ask her who she is with etc. if required.
