How can I get internet access in the middle of nowhere?

Q: I have a small place in the mountains with very limited phone service. I would like to use my laptop to access the Internet. There are no hotspots etc. How do I do this?

    You’ll probably need to look into a satellite internet service, such as those offered by http://www.wildblue.com/ and http://www.hughesnet.com/
    These services don’t require the use of a phone line, both upstream and downstream internet communications are handled by satellite.

    I suggest to do some research at http://www.dslreports.com/ which has a mountain of information on Internet Services Providers, including satellite providers to find the best one that suits your needs and budget.
