You can't get DSL, fibre or RBI, I'm assuming then? What location is this? What does the broadband map say you can get?

lets go back 7 years ago when i could get adsl here (very slow), then i moved to local wireless provider 4 years ago was chewing threw there limited 200gb  as well , so i found unlimited 3G plan that a  provider  does here,wasn't allowed to mention them in any forums etc as was only trial ive still got that on till today but its slowly gone quite slow.....

 

as for adsl they purposely turned off adsl from my connection when the neighbour next door has it on ( and ive talked about it on geekzone in a thread along thread about 6 years ago )

 

they want everyone to go to wireless,me being at 5km from the exchange i was problematic too them , so now just doesnt show on the map anymore 

 

i can gat RBI with a 4G antenna quite good .need more data from there plans ( new one might be ideal)

 

as for the local wireless supplier eg lightwire they have changed there conditions since i was connected ,cant be further than 15km from there tower , the one i could get theres trees on the neighbouring property blocking line of sight .

 

the struggles of rural internets ....lol
