Re: internet option for rural j5m 1h2

How is the 3G reception outside? I assume you're testing on a phone.

If you can get even just enough signal to make it work, I know it sounds stupid, but you can run a long USB extender (the ones that convert USB to CAT5) up an antenna and place the stick in a sealed plastic box attached to an antenna mast.

My friend went the slightly simpler route of sticking it in the top of his attic. HOWEVER, he could get 3G reception on his phone when he was near a window, and always 3G reception outside.

If it's a complexity of install issue, xplornet will be no easier.
