If your situation is appropriate, you may be able to use a repeater in order to acquire your internet access. With a repeater, you would not have a monthly bill, unless you were splitting a bill with someone else. Which would also be cost effective. We live near my parent's home. They have a good internet connection. We just bounce their signal down to our house with the use of a repeater. It sets up like a router, it is basically an access point. Very easy to do. Of course you will have to buy the repeater, but once you buy it, that will be the only money going out. We get good service and are quite pleased. There are lots of good ones out there, search Amazon customer ratings to find the latest and best.
