Hi Everyone,

Moving to a new house in Lowell and trying to figure out my best internet option as I work from home. Comcast and AT&T are both out - I've tried calling multiple times and both companies said they will not extend service to my house.

So, my options are Dish Network satellite internet, or a Verizon 4G LTE hotspot device.

Obviously Verizon will provide faster speeds but the data caps they have are very restrictive - any video streaming whatsoever will eat up your data caps in no-time.

Has anyone used Dish Network's satellite internet? I've always read & heard to stay away from satellite internet, but technology is always improving - maybe this has changed?

Thanks for any input.
