I ran two load balanced ADSL connections for a while.
Each was running at ~2.5Mb and while it worked quite well in removing the pain, I still found things like PC updates, iOS device updates and streaming TV difficult (but not impossible). For the two line rentals, two sets of broadband, it was expensive at around £60/month for what was still essentially quite a slow connection. I did look at bonding them but that would have added another ~£25/month.
Satellite was a non starter for me, far too expensive and limited data allowances and whilst I have no direct experience of it, I have friends and neighbours who use it and service levels and opinions vary drastically. My preference to satellite was to use the 2x ADSL lines.
I attempted to convince a wireless ISP to expand into our area but they either wanted astronomical setup costs to get it up and running or a lot of users to sign up. I canvassed the local area and while there is demand, many dont care (yet) what speed they get as long as email and web browsing works.
What I have done is find a source/host close to a BDUK FTTC cabinet who was willing to let me install a second line and mount a small ubiquiti 5Ghz wifi dish to beam that 5km to my house. Are there any areas within say a 10km radius with decent internet access that you could set up something similar?
