    I live in a rural area and have to use dial-up. I can't get ADSL or afford
    2-way satellite yet. I hear there is wireless broadband.

    I live in BC, Canada. Is it available there?

    Satellite *is* wireless; the only other wireless service is Wi-Fi,
    and that is line-of-sight and maybe limited to 5 miles depending on the
    antennas...
