Satelite internet is way better than dial up...probably not as fast as roadrunner or something like that but we live in the country and that was our only option if we wanted high speed
You can get a cell phone card to connect. My mother-in-law uses one and it is really her only option for internet. She gets hers through AT&T. My sister has one through Sprint. It seems to cost about the same ammount as cable internet but you can only have one computer connected at a time.
