This is my eventual goal where I'm moving. (Oswego Co., NY).

I'm well aware that I'm moving outside of "broadband-land", and while
I'm not happy about this, the pros of moving there outweighed this
con.

Options seem to be limited to HughesNet and dial for the moment, but
things may change if I put a tower on the property. HughesNet seems to
relax it's bandwidth cap between 2am and 7am, which is helpful, but
still a great shift from what I'm used to at the current residence
(15/2).

It would be great to get neighbors in on some sort of community
solution, but it will take some time to feel out where they are on
this.
