Since you mentioned great service with Verizon mobile, have you looked at Verizon MiFi? These kind of services tend to be a bit pricey depending on your data usage, so you may want to consider that when looking at their data plans.
My parents live in an area where wired internet is prohibitive. They currently subscribe to HughesNet and it is (always has been) atrocious and they need an alternative.
A couple notes:
My iphone that uses the verizon network works great at their house and is tremendously faster than their desktop internet.
They are current DirectTV subscribers for TV
They live NW of Portland, Oregon on Sauvie Island.
Clear Wireless does not work here regardless of what they say.
