What's the best internet option for rural areas?

Episode 1038 (2:05:15)

Mike from Rock Valley, IA

Mike has DISH for Satellite Internet, but it's really slow and unstable. Leo says that the federal government needs to create a Tennessee Valley Authority with broadband. It's not really in the interests of broadband companies to provide access in rural areas.

There are different levels of satellite internet service so he may be able to improve it, though. Leo recommends Wild Blue's Exede. They do a better job, but it won't be as fast. Another option is 4G via MyFi and Verizon. Verizon has wireless home services as well. He should also check out BroadbandReports.com.
