Internet coverage is a joke. They count stuff that doesn't actually function, like satellite based, as part of high speed availability. It's been 20 years since they said everyone would get dsl, and still nothing.

5g is looking to be the next great hope, but who knows when that will actually be available outside urban centers.

It will take a while, but Elon Musk's already started launching a constellation of (eventually) thousands low-earth-orbit satellites to provide - among other things - rural access. It's one of the things that's kept us from moving into an environment in which we'd much rather live.

The new Iridium Sats? I know they were put in orbit via SpaceX. Don't know how they will do as far as Internet. I had Hughes Sat for internet before I got cable,, If it was as cheap as cable I would still have them,,

Musk’s project is wildly different from the Hughes legacy system. Thousands of satellites very close instead of a small number of geosynchronous ones very far away. Far better coverage, WAY less lag, and much, much cheaper per end user for actually usable amounts of monthly bandwidth. Whole different animal.

That's the next "high speed/low drag solution." Until enough people start using it to clog it...
