Regarding cell service, we formerly had AT&T, and although a bit spotty at times, we never lost service while visiting the area. Now, we have T-Mobile, and I don't have as high of hopes for it, since there are parts near to KC where it almost disappears. I haven't been down to Bull Shoals since switching from AT&T, so I don't know for sure.

I know that CATV is available to our property, but I think that the choices are overall pretty slim. Satellite internet might be the best, albeit expensive option for a lot of places.
I have T-Mobile and have solid coverage and speed when I'm around Mountain Home visiting family. Not sure about the outlying areas but T-Mobile isn't known for being the best in rural areas. Cable and DSL internet are available pretty much everywhere that's not waaay out in the boonies. They also recently announced a huge 1GBps fiber internet expansion around Mountain Home through North Arkansas Electric Cooperative. It's called "NEXT" and it's going to be made available to all of their electric customers though it may take up to 5 years to expand out to all rural areas. I imagine being able to get 1 gig internet even out in the more isolated areas will be a nice quality of life reassurance for people relocating to the area.

DSL has distance limitations, As a general rule, 18,000 cable feet from the Central Office. Also as the distance increases, the data speed decreases. Check with the local Telco to see what they offer. DSL info

As a former user of satellite internet service, I can say it was not a pleasant experience.
