Good luck. Wireless service is a great idea, except that it?s availability is very limited. There are several companies out there that provide this, such as GoAmerica, but service availability isn?t that great. I have a Ricochet modem with a GoAmerica account and work in New York City but still experience many problems connecting in different parts of the city. When I do connect, it?s great. Very fast, but the amount of times I can?t connect make using this product very frustrating. I would assume that rural areas would be virtually impossible at this point in time. I live in Long Island, which isn?t that rural and I can never get a connection. Don?t fret though; eventually wireless service will get much better. A few years ago cell phones had similar issues in rural areas, however, today they are much better. Be patient, I don?t see wireless service in rural areas being acceptable any time soon.
