I am on a quest to find, middle of nowhere towns, but still has cable internet, 4g, and a nice size grocery store with some eateries. So far, I have found a few towns in GA and MA.

average 2,000 sq ft home is about 150k.

Do you guys have any recs?

Check out Levy and Dixie County 45 minutes west of Gainesville, FL on zillow. Towns like Chiefland, Old Town, Bronson, Williston. Dirt cheap housing yet you'll still have the basic necessities of life like Winn Dixie, Walgreens, Super Walmart, local restaurants and the fast food and restaurant chains. You are also close to lots of springs and state parks.

Also, you'll be within 45 minutes of Gainesville with major medical and shopping for when you need to go into a bigger town.

Corydon, Indiana

I wouldn't call it "middle of nowhere" but it's also not a "hub" if you will. But it is a great small town, population of around 5,000. Great homes ranging all the way from $80K-$250K depending on what you want. Multiple groceries in town, a lot of local restaurants, plus some chain options as well. Also has a decent size hospital if that's of importance.

You'd also only be about 40 minutes away from Louisville, KY, which is a large metro with anything & everything you could want.

Baxter, Tennessee. Gigabit internet, a couple of grocery stores, a dozen or so restaurants, an hour east of Nashville, 8 miles to Cookeville.

Or, even a bit more remote, Gainesboro, Tennessee, which also has gigabit internet.

Check out Reidsville NC which is a beautiful area about 30 minutes north of Greensboro. It's a good climate (milder winters, longer springs and falls), the town has all the amenities you need, low density areas on the outskirts and throughout town, nice home options in your price range and internet/4g service.

Many areas in the Rust Belt are dirt cheap, oftentimes cheaper than the rural South.

You could also make this argument for just about any of the cities in MT.

You could even probably throw Wichita, KS in, because even though it is large, it is not close to anything, surrounded by practically nothing, and is very cheap.

Renovo, PA

Checked Verizon 4G map, ok
Grocery store, Lingle's Neighborhood Market - Fresh Meat, Fresh Deli/bakery, Butcher Shop

Looking at listings just now:
3 bd 2 ba 1,776 sq ft $48,000
4 bd 1.5 ba 2,240 sq ft $59,900
6 bd 2 ba $79,900

Note this is an hour drive to nearest mall (State College, PA)
Nearest Apple store, Lancaster PA, 114 miles (2.5 to 3 hours)

Quaint, it ain't. But you did say "cheapest."
