Thanks for the feedback.
Check out Western Broadband to see if they are better than Cobalt. Western offers coverage in the same area, and I've spoken with two people who are happy with them.
If you do go with Western, please let me know how it works out for you. I can't use Hughes because I need to VPN into work, and I'm told that the latency on satellite is not compatible with VPN.
Best to you!
