We got Mobile Brodband here in the states when we went off-grid, and I absolutely love it! I can be on line, even surf the web on the road while the hubby drives if I want. It is a little expensive for the option we’ve chosen, about $65.00/mo. with all the taxes, but it is an unlimited service, and it seems that plans are starting to get more affordable.

I really like geeko’s idea of sharing the connection/cost with neighbors to help all involved. I think it would take something like a Hub (in our case, wireless hub would be the way to go, since the nearest neighbor is about 1/2 mi. or more as the crow flys). I think the basic technology would be similar to setting up a wireless home network. Not sure exactly how to do that, or what kind of signal strength one would need to make it happen.
