Hey there Aaron,

I use to live on whiskey hill ( dryad place) I had the LTE Broadband and worked great you can move the box around your home till you find a good connection the the T-Mobile tower I got around 50-80 MB at times. They also have some fiber running up whiskey as well.

Good luck with your internet journey!

We have successfully used our phones as hotspots too, but there have been very few outages, usually planned outages. You may want to ask some of your new neighbors ... Read All

Thanks for the info. A big help.

Is the T-Mobile service you have 5g home internet (I’m showing not available yet), Or are you using mobile hotspot? Or something else?

Thanks again.

Your neighborhood may have several options. Rock Island is part of Opalco, they can tell you. The Internet you can get that isn't fiber is very good anyway and plenty fast in our experience, it's actually provided by t+mobile ( pretty sure it's an exclusive and the only way you can get T-Mobile Internet up here(
