I live in rural Quebec (prior, I lived in rural Colorado) and there's
no hope of ever getting high speed.  I used Satellite (awful) for a
while.  Once the village got DSL, I replicated what we did in

   o Find a `friendly' home you can `see' from your home - which has
     high speed.  :)
   o Get an outdoor enclosure for your DSL modem (and network gear)
     and install a new  phone line (dry if possible - no data)
   o Setup a point-to-point wireless connection from your home to the
     other home.  Ubiquiti gear is cheap yet awesome.

Here are some ping times on my wireless 6KM link:

   XM.v5.3# ping -c 5
