Also worth review is spacenet the Nova system is great. Below the starband link is the local dealers in Ohio. You will pay more, but get better service.
The thing with hughes is they load up the transponders too much. Their ratios are very high 100 to 1 for instance (100 customers per transponder) where as Starband may be 50 to 1. There is a lot less of a log jam. Those are not exact numbers I am using them as an example. I'm not sure what the real numbers are most of the lower end systems don't tell you.

1) Verizon doesn't reach there, but how about Sprint wireless broadband?
2) Get to know the neighbors 2 doors down with Time Warner access. Put in a wireless N router. Share with your family. Not sure how big the lots are and, therefore, whether it will reach or not.

MY brother and sister-in-law are building a house in the middle of nowhere (or close too it) and will be moving in about 4-5 months from now. There is no cable or DSL internet available so they have to go with satellite. They already have Dish Network at their current house so they are going to use the dish mover program and have it installed at their new house. They need to find an internet provider. I know there are two, Wildblue and Hughes Net. They need help on deciding which is the best. I don't know much about either provider. My brother and his wife do download music from itunes and upload pictures on Kodak easy share and stuff like that. Looking at their websites, i can tell you they will need at least the 1Mbps package from either provider, maybe even the 1.5Mb. It one point, I thought I heard that hughes net had a restriction on the amount of bandwidth you can use per month. Help!
I use SkyWay for my internet service and it works pretty well for me. It's only about 30 bucks a month. So yeah, check them out. I can't post urls yet (the whole 5 posts rule), but just use the link in my signature.
