Internet Access for Remote Locations

Postby oil » Wed Dec 30, 2015 3:11 pm

not completly electric but sort of :D

is there any internet access experience for Remote Locations, where no DSL is available and never will be.
i am asking explicitly for more a high speed solution so GSM, Phonestick and such doesnt really fit into it, i am more looking for a Satelite Solution or Point to Point Internet or anything else i never heard of .... however
it should be still considered sort of high speed internet for remote locations ... i have the feeling something like that must exist.

Any input is welcome

fredlk describes the TOT WiMax adsl system here in his building story :Building my house in Sattahip at page 174, which might be a possible solution for your Internet Access options

My only advice is to stay away from Satellite Internet that CAT is pushing @ ... /network/7

Many complaints about the service and reliability, not to mention the lag which virtually eliminates any online gaming or even VOIP (like SKYPE)

I had Hughes Net when I lived in a rural location in the US and it was a nightmare since they capped your downloading and then restriced your already slow speeds even more if you exceeded your weekly allowance

Depending upon the location of cell towers near your location 3 or 4G might only be your only option, which of course better than nothing

When I first moved to my remote village here in Isan there was only dial-up, so I had IPstar satellite Internet installed and used it for a couple of years until DSL came to the village. the iPstar connection was OK-ish but not reliable enough for VOIP or YouTube or anything that needed more bandwidth. We now have fibre optic in our tiny remote village and it's even better than some connections in medium sized towns in the UK! IPstar has probably been much improved since the days when we used it, I don't know.

MyCat now has an unlimited 512 kpbs ( considered 3G ) so if you happen to have coverage, this would be as good as a a satellite connection, always on, and now worry about caps. Had satellite in USA and the 512kbps service from CAT is as good or better. The only other option not covered here yet is something like this: which if you're enterprising enough, you could set up yourself.

I have AIS point to point antenna link.. Works very well.
If you have an AIS 3G antenna nearby (line of sight), that might be a very good option.
Recently signed up for and streaming sports channels is perfect. (obviously in HD)..
Very reasonable cost as well.
