British farmer sets up own 4G mast for rural broadband simulation


A farmer, Richard Guy in rural England has tackled the problem of rural broadband by setting up his own rig, a 4G mast, as documented here .

By the way, here is a discussion defining 4G LTE (“4th generation Long Term Evolution) v. 3G, link .  
    
 In many remote areas, or deep within many buildings or subways, I often still see 1X, which generally means voice calls only.  
  
My impression is that Verizon has the most 4G LTE coverage in the US, although there are some blind spots (like most of West Virginia).
