Does anyone here know of any Broadband provider that will cover around
Cross ( South Mayo ). I tried westnet,
but aparently Cross is too rural for them, and the family needs broadband.

My family in Mayo use the vodafone dongle at the minute, and it works
fine in some parts of the house, and not so well in other parts.
The main problem is that vodafone are quite stingy in their bandwidth
allowance, and they only allow you 5G per month. If an external
antenna were possible we might be able to use a different mobile
provider ( failing any sort of real broadband ).
