My husband and I both work remotely from our home. We recently purchased a new home 5 miles from Stevens Point, WI and have been trying to set up all of our new accounts. To our great dismay, there are no high speed internet options. We were told AT&T DSL is available at our address, but we cannot get this service because it is being phased out. U-verse is not available either. I am just crushed that we found our dream home but now I don't even know how we will be able to work as we both require a reliable internet connection. It never in a million years would have occurred to me (obviously) to even have to check for availability since we are so close to a vibrant college town where we've never had internet issues previously.
Is there any way I can get more information as to if there is any possible way we can use the existing DSL connection or when, if ever, U-verse may be available? I would really appreciate any assistance or information.
Thank you so much,

To the OP, I really feel for your situation. I think cellular or cable are your best options for now.
I use a Clear wifi hotspot and find cellular LTE/Wimax to be quite good for real-time connections. What applications do you run when you are remote? I have used Citrix and Logmein over Wimax for several years, and I have found them to be pretty good.
The major downside to cellular are the bandwidth caps. Clear had offered unlimited service, but their coverage was poor nationally and they no longer sign up new customers.
