Default Need a rural friendly wifi connection

Recently, ive moved to a very rural area and im finding it difficult to deal with the extreme limitations of my wifi connection. The area im in is too far for the big providers to give me my own router or modem, and ive had to settle with using a couple Verizon Jetpacks. The limit of 15 GB per month is starting to become very hard to deal with however, especially because of my habit of playing MMORPGs and FPS games. I was wondering if there was anyone out there that might know of something that could help my situation. Thanks in advance

Sounds like your issue is that you don't have an ISP that provides to your area, rather than having a wifi issue. If you don't have any broadband ISP that provides to your area you are stuck with your current situation or possibly Hughes which would be worse in terms of ping.
