Rural Internet in Central Texas

I am looking for rural Internet options in the Hill Country.

What are my options? Found one provider but they charge by how many GBs you use and that's not feasible for me.

Depending on how for out in the woods you are you might check on Sprint. I use their USB unit on my laptop in the truck. They have upgraded most of their towers and I can watch streaming video in most areas. Even out in the sticks. It looks like a good connection in the San Marcos, Texas rural area.

Here is a page with a link to their coverage maps. Just enter your Zip. (I like link 2 better.)

Sprint Link #1
Sprint Link #2

Thanks for the links. What is the top speed you get and how much do you pay, also is it unlimited?

I think I was Grandfathered in as an unlimited user. Check with Sprint. I get 1.2 to 2.5mb download speed based on several speed tests done around the country.

Total Sprint bill with 2 cells and internet for laptop runs a little less than $160 a month.
