Fiber optic would be my preferred choice, but I understand it may be a while until it gets to your new house. Does the neighborhood has a cable TV provider? If so, cable internet should be available from the same company.

Check out this site:

Thanks, yea I looked it up, only satellite internet seems to be available there.
Only two companies, Hughes net and viasat.

We're hoping it will get to our area when it covers Africa! Our current options are dismal and expensive but at present we have no choice.

Thanks for this suggestion. I really don't know if this available yet. But it sounds great!
