Is LTE solving Internet access problem in rural regions?

In the rural regions there is limited choice for Internet service providers (ISP). In my region, there is only one choice for cable connection… Therefore, I have decided to try widely advertised LTE. I have chosen one of the providers based on the closest LTE stations.

The real speed (20Mbps / 4Mbps) is far from the advertised 150Mbps, but it’s way better than my current cable connection (10Mbps / 1Mbps). Unfortunately, the station is some 3km away. I have obtained 30Mbps / 4.3Mbps by placing the modem outdoor, but this seems to be max in my region.

But still, the problem with data transfer limit remains… Hopefully, the competition between LTE providers will withdraw those limits as it happened in the early years with ADSL providers.
