I am trying to get broadband to a cottage in Wales (no phone line anywhere near, and almost no mobile reception!). The choices seem to be:
(c) making friends with a farmer whose barn I can see about 2 km away, getting a phone line to there, then setting up a wifi link up the mountain side and paying him a bit each year for the privilege.
I've tried Exwavia but they don't cover my area (Snowdonia).
All the Tooway suppliers I talk to seem to say you get far more capacity for your money from them and that Avanti does not have good customer service and reliability; similarly, the Avanti suppliers say that their equipment is far higher quality and that you actually get what is promised whereas Tooway start to throttle your usage when you have only had half what you thought you had paid for!
I would really prefer to avoid the hassle of a DIY system - I want to just pay someone and have it work (preferably with a Welsh Assembly grant).
I would appreciate comments from any users of Tooway and Avanti systems (or DIY wifi links!). Are people generally happy or do they wish they had opted for the alternative supplier? Is there any noticeable difference in "quality"?
