We're in a similar boat.  We're too far away for DSL, microwave can't 
reach us due to the treeline, and Cable isn't available here. I took a 
page from FullTime RV folks, and bought a commercial grade router/AP 
that uses cellular modems for uplink, and then found a business cellular 
package that has unlimited use.  We burn through 400GB every month here.
