Our cottage is outside Algonquin and I've been told there no hope of a landline connection of any sort. That leaves Shaw/xplornet's satellite or LTE service. Their LTE seems to be unlimited, so that's good, but is 85 a month and 50 bux setup AND no seasonal turn-off. Their sat service is even more rediculous.

So the other options seem to be:

Get an access point from Bell/Rogers/Telus (or their fighters). To make this work I would have to use an external antenna, but looking over the options on some of their pages, it doesn't appear any of them have antenna connections any more. Does anyone know of one?

The other option is a cell booster with a nice log-periodic antenna. Then I would use my own phone's 15G plan. This would also make the phones work better. However, I hear mixed results with these things. Does anyone have experience with them?

Did you check with Bell to see if the new rural internet service using LTE+ I believe is available. From what I've seen the rates aren't horrible.
