The most common way to get rural internet is through a satellite internet connection.
Satellite internet is available in most places because it’s a signal beamed down from space. You can get connected whether you live on a 2,500–acre farm or in a mountain cabin.
Even so, there is a catch.
Satellite internet connections have long delays (cue the spinning beach ball of doom) and provide less monthly data to work with, which makes them more expensive than other internet types.
Starlink by SpaceX is striving to bypass these challenges by creating a low-Earth orbit satellite network. Starlink promises great speeds, but will cost $110 per month, in addition to another $599 up front to cover equipment costs. If you opt for Starlink Business, it'll cost $500 per month and $2,500 for equipment.
Other satellite providers like Viasat and HughesNet impose strict limits on the amount of internet data you can use. Although the data is technically unlimited, if you go over your allotted amount, your speeds will substantially slow until the following billing cycle.
