Sounds like the area around the farm I have, no cell signal, very sketchy landline, many use satellite for internet. I still have an 8' dish in the yard out there, lol.
Not too many choices here at home. Thought about an iPhone, but not sure I want to deal with the small screen. We do have two cable companies, but one robs you and the other made an agreement not to serve my part of the county, while they are all around me at the same time.
