First, DO NOT buy a property without high speed Internet. DSL doesn't count. Must be cable, FIOS, or something faster than DSL. Without it you'll be living in the last century for information and media streaming (or lack of streaming).
I don't know about the states, but in Canada, if you live in the country, you can count out DSL, fiber, and cable, as none of those services are available once you go more than a kilometer outside the city/town.
It's gonna be either dialup, satellite, 3G/4G, or fixed wireless (if you're lucky).
