How can I get high speed internet out in the middle of nowhere?

by on September 23, 2010

Q: I live in a rural area that does not have broadband yet – there is one ISP that offers a wireless service. My question is – My Valet and the Cisco products that have a router, software to connect a USB thingy and using an Ethernet cable. This is supposed to make you “wifi” from anywhere. Will this work for me for high speed internet out in the middle of nowhere?

    Your computers can connect to your router via either wifi or Ethernet cable. From here your router needs to connect out to an Internet Service Provider.

    The cisco router will let you make a wifi connection, but that connection will only be between the computer and the router, there wouldn’t be a connection out to the internet without that connection to an ISP.

    So you’ll need to try that wireless service by the one ISP, and also talk to your local telecom companies and your local government about bringing rural broadband to your community.
