I am looking for a hi speed ISP that is available in the boonies. Anyone out there had any luck finding a provider. OMR, anyone?
I've tried Bell passport with no luck.

In my last job I was tasked with finding appropriate service for one of my colleagues in Almonte (sufficiently boonies, apparently). Alas, there is no solution. There is a satelite hybrid option that utilizes satelite for incoming packets, and your phoneline for outgoing, but such methods make secure transfer using VPN impossible, and this was a deal crasher for our security requirements.

Bell is working on solutions, but it could be years before they come your way.

I wish I had better news for you.

There's a bunch of wireless providers around now. They can come do a site survey of your place for free. Basically you need "line of sight" to their tower.
Storm is one but there are others that may be faster & cheaper.
