Internet Access - Here's What I Did
I asked what you folks thought about satellite and got mixed opinions (which mirrors what I've seen online when I read reviews). I called the local cable company to see if there was any chance that cable would come out here (no).
I decided to try and maximize what I have before I make any more commitments to new providers. So, here's what I did (unfortunately after an absurd amount of time-consuming research). I bought an external antenna, a few cables and connectors and a router. Ideally, the signal will get stronger (faster), and I'll be able to set up that home network I've been looking forward to in a week or so. If those don't work well enough, I'll buy an amplifier - but I'll try this stuff first. We'll see how it goes!
