Is This Unlimited Internet?
“Unlimited Data” has become the word of the day and should be highly suspect. The next biggest word is “Throttled”. In the case of the HughesNet advertising that Echostar is spending millions of dollars on, “unlimited” does not mean that you are not throttled. It simply means that once you hit your threshold of 50 GB for $149.99 they throttle your speed for overage back to around 1 Mbps leaving you without the ability to do anything more than check your email. You are obviously not disconnected so the term “Unlimited” is technically correct. That is basically Dial Up.
What is the best internet for rural areas?
There are some nice plans being offered by independent WISP’s (Wireless Internet Service Providers) like the one we provide to Piqua, OH that have fair prices, decent speeds, and local customer service. Where available those wireless data connections are going to be highly dependent on LOS (Line of Site) issues, regarding trees, buildings, and terrain. Many of these WISP’s have greatly benefitted from Department of Agriculture initiatives for Rural Broadband expansion but just aren’t always available.
Latency is the largest issue facing rural internet. Latency is the difference between when you take an action and something happens on the screen via the internet. Satellite internet is around 600 milliseconds and is the slowest of all connections. Rural LTE Studies have this at around 60 milliseconds.
Internet Options: How to get internet where there is none?
Assuming you can’t get a cellular connection where you live, you are down to Satellite Internet like ViaSat, which has always historically had very poor upload and download speeds and expensive equipment to invest in.
The only other internet provider outside of that is DSL provided by the phone company. In most cases DSL and LTE speeds are basically the same, but with one big caveat. LTE networks are newer and work off of towers vs. DSL, which is still a wired connection which greatly increases the likelihood of the neighbor cutting the line.
Does Verizon offer rural internet?
Yes Verizon, as well as T-Mobile and AT&T are offering through third parties 100,200, 400, and 500 Gb packages from $99-$139. This has proven to be a great alternative to Satellite and can usually be setup for less than $500.
Will 5G Wireless be available in rural areas?
While 5G is going to start rolling out in early 2020 the towers that will be the first to be replaced will be in more popular areas. Places where it can serve the most people possible and easily be maintained. In the future, this is could be an option for decreasing the gap in internet speeds between urban and rural.
