Hey, we'd be glad to use an outdoor modem via WiFi here in Western North Carolina where we don't have several sources of Internet access!

It won't. LTE in the US will use 700MHz. The problem here isn't with the tech. It's with the frequency used. There's a lot of bandwidth, but it doesn't go through walls.
Wonder if Clear could make an outdoor mounting kit for their fixed moderm? Methinks that would solve the problem.
Dont you see though, it doesn't matter, this was just one example.. many are complaining about reception problems.. examples.. buildings in the way, transmission noise from anything, even tomarrow's devices, other devices that use the 2.4Ghz range (wifi, cordless phones), microwave ovens.. I can go on and on.
Buying an outside antennae is rarely a cureall solution unless you live in an area where the only things around are your home and the transmission tower with no obstructions in the way.
Here's the thing thats not getting the proper attention, what about tomarrow; what if tomarrow they build a structure that degrades your signal, are you going to move.
