The county I live in (and many areas, probably) in Mississippi has no Internet service outside of town. AT&T pulled DSL service a few years ago, so the only Internet service is the local cable TV company, which only offers service to the areas closer to town. For the people who build in the rural areas, the only available services are wireless Internet via WiFi bridges (mostly unavailable due to terrain and not commercially available (basically only if you know someone with Internet access and have the resources). Satellite Internet is common but slow and unreliable (probably since the spot beam for this part of the country is so packed). Most have satellite TV if nothing else. The area is served by 3 newspapers, one from the town, one for the county, and the other serving several counties. Cellphone service is generally shoddy all around, and some do use cellular repeaters, but they are not common. There are many radio stations available. I live on the very edge of the city limits and what is considered “town” and have Internet access from the one available provider, but past here, it is mostly nothing.
