Rural LTE Internet Access Tips and News

Rural people looking for better internet. I, and those that join me, are just looking into more cost efficient ways to access the internet in rural areas, or to get access to it at all. It could be as simple as switching services, or as complicated as digging and running our own lines. The hope is that technology evolves to help us in our goal and that it can be proliferated to the most rural entities.

  • Just purchased T-Mobile Home Internet and have a question if someone can help?
    by /u/odxholmes on September 17, 2021 at 1:12 pm

    Hey all! Thanks to this sub Reddit I took the leap in to purchasing T-Mobile home internet. I’m an existing/current SimNet Wireless user, been with the company for two years, raked across the hot coals in to purchasing new equipment each time there is an issue, and second to none I love the Teltonika equipment it’s great. Speaking with the support staff, they are also fantastic but the company is limited in terms of fixing issues. Our most recent issue is being forced a new SIM card, up charged $30 more a month because of a new contract and we lost our 40/12 d/u and now I’m getting 12/0.03 d/u and met with shoulder shrugs. So now i vented my frustration, I came here and found plenty of people pointing to just going straight to the service providers themselves, I.e T-Mobile/Verizon/att With all this fancy equipment I purchased, I would hate for $800 to go to waste, they told me I need to use the T-Mobile modem router combo, but has anyone removed the sim card and put it in another device, is this something I could even do? I just placed the order and have time to cancel if I’ve done this incorrectly submitted by /u/odxholmes [link] [comments]

    Hello, wanted to help with any questions about our router I have seen far too many miss-information about our products so thought it would be best to help answer questions directly. We have sold over 500,000 routers so I am sure there could be a lot of good and bad experience over the years but hope instead of bashing or doing any promotion that we can focus on answering your questions that you might have submitted by /u/Glad_Ad1607 [link] [comments]

  • GL-X750V2 TTL Setting
    by /u/Intrepid-Patient9762 on September 16, 2021 at 3:00 pm

    Ok guys and gals, I have ran into a dilemma. I currently have GLiNet X750v2 4g Router that I am using for my cellular data plan. I am wanting to switch the TTL setting to 65 or 66 but cannot seem to figure out how to apply the command into the router settings. Does anyone on here know how to change the TTL for this specific router? This is an experiment for me to see how the sim responds to the data usage. I.E. if changing the TTL to 65 or 66 will this change the outgoing data usage from a phone or hot spot tethering usage. This is my goal and would really appreciate if someone could help. Thanks in advance. submitted by /u/Intrepid-Patient9762 [link] [comments]

  • Best 4g lte home internet provider?
    by /u/C_Bass_10 on September 16, 2021 at 11:24 am

    I'm looking for a good 4g internet provider. Obviously I would rather have fiber but that's not available where I live and my past experience w satellite internet has been absolutely trash. I have excellent reception through Verizon anywhere from 3-5 bars and I think the same for att. Mostly I will use it for playing ps4 games so I would like to have a consistent ping. I would like to also be able to watch some Netflix and such in 4k or 1080 so I would need a plan with over 100gb with no speed throttling, depriortization or hard caps. Verizons 150gb plan is not available in my area currently unfortunately. I've done some research and have found a few that seem tempting but before I commit to anything I would like some other opinions and more info. So basically I need a plan with high download speeds, low latency and high data limit for around $100/month. A shot in the dark but any help will be greatly appreciated! submitted by /u/C_Bass_10 [link] [comments]

  • No signal with Tmobile
    by /u/peonyblossom6 on September 16, 2021 at 12:24 am

    I tried t-mobile home internet with the tower they provide. It doesn't work at all. I get almost no signal. I can't stream a show or anything. I'm looking for another option. There aren't landline phone lines, which is what everyone else around me uses. Verizon doesn't have lte internet service near me either. I have seen some people stick a sim card into a router? Does that actually work? submitted by /u/peonyblossom6 [link] [comments]

  • What kind of router do people have for T-Mobile home internet?
    by /u/Lilojoekool on September 15, 2021 at 7:12 pm

    I've seen several posts online about the routers they were provided and I've never seen a single person have the router that I have, it's all been the "trashcan". submitted by /u/Lilojoekool [link] [comments]

  • Fiber passed our road... Again
    by /u/amexultima on September 15, 2021 at 11:56 am

    My current internet system (other than waiting for starlink) is a cricket phone hotspot and a tp link, when this inevitably fails I have a Verizon tablet plan as backup. My Verizon is never over 1Mbps, my cricket has been known to hit 20, yet I think the average is around 2.5-3.5 I am pretty sure I still don't have TMobile where I am at and I will never sign back up to att directly. I use my Verizon connection for updating phones and background download due to how insanely slow it is, after 22g it does not even slow down it's already so slow! Seriously I feel like old school 28k modem was more reliable. The cricket I have to buy 15g blocks of data but it doesn't feel like they ever shut me all the way off with data caps as long as I buy it 15g at a time. So the question is, is there a better way to do what I am doing? It's costing my like 200 a month for less than 100gigs and it requires constant fiddling to make it work. Also, nothing is reliable enough to complete a full match in ANY game. Tl;dr No t mobile ok Verizon pretty good att, can't go through ATT directly however, HELP... Otrmobile? Nomad? Raspberry pi? submitted by /u/amexultima [link] [comments]

  • Mobile hotspot throttle limit bypass
    by /u/C_Bass_10 on September 15, 2021 at 8:15 am

    So where I live there is no internet providers and my only option for internet is to use mobile hotspot thru verizon. The speeds are decent up until I use 15gb then I'm extremely throttled and it's basically useless. I'm wondering if there is a way to bypass this throttle somehow? Also if I connect my mobile hotspot to a router would that increase my internet speed and still allow me to bypass the speed throttling? I've used apps such as pdanet and they work great but the only problem is that because those apps use a proxy I can't connect to Playstation network or watch Netflix. Any help is greatly appreciated. submitted by /u/C_Bass_10 [link] [comments]

  • Share your bill to advocate for more accessible broadband
    by /u/erikayp on September 14, 2021 at 6:00 pm

    Consumer Reports and a coalition of organizations are gathering and analyzing thousands of internet bills from across the U.S. to determine how much folks are paying for internet service, if they’re getting what they pay for, and to dig into disparities in access and cost. Wanted to share with this community as it’s really relevant for folks living in rural areas, and would be great to get that representation in this effort! You can upload your bill here! submitted by /u/erikayp [link] [comments]

  • Anyone use WeBoost?
    by /u/toss_my_potatoes on September 14, 2021 at 2:11 pm

    I live in a really rural area where there are no traditional ISP options. I was going to go with the Calyx institute (we use a lot of data, it seemed like the best option), but my phone, which is with Sprint, gets a pretty weak signal at our house (like one or two bars). Haven't tested T-Mobile yet but I imagine their coverage is similar. I was thinking about using a WeBoost to improve the Sprint/T-Mobile signal here. Has anyone used WeBoost before? Any tips? Or is there a better cell signal booster out there? submitted by /u/toss_my_potatoes [link] [comments]

    Otr via att is capping me. This month 25 go, I call tech support and they swear it's not the case. Let's check your settings, an hour later of playing the game with them. Still nothing. Reresh yada yada. Is there another company anyone else has had better luck with than otr? Att signal is the best where I am. I have an unlocked mr1100 and submitted by /u/Tbagjimmy [link] [comments]
