Rural Internet?

I am sure that from the title many know what I am about to say.  I need fast rural internet.  Now I have seen huge's net, wildblue, and starband.  The problem is that the first two offer puny download/upload limits.  I am not the kind of person who checks my email and that is it.  I wan't to host servers, stream movies and watch HD youtube.  Yea these satellite companies offer great download speeds, especially starband which I haven't seen a cap for, but the upload speeds are HORRIBLE, worse than what I have now which is really bad.  Now this is obvious because your sending information to SPACE.  So can I maybe get an aftermarket transmitter that is like NASA grade or something.  Or do I need to find a down to earth method to do this.  I live in the middle of nowhere so there is really no other way I don't think.  Do you have any ideas or services you would recommend.

Important information which you didn't include in the text above:

Where you live to ~100miles or so
What transfer rates you want
How much money you would spend
What type of telephone services are available where ever it is that you are.

You meant HughesNet®?

Yuma Colorado, about 7 miles west of the town, 1.5 mbps down min. really high 1 mbps upload (yea that sounds crazy, but my upload and download are both aroun .71 mbps if there is something that offers 10 mbps upload and download for under $100 a month that would be a hell of a deal, but like that would ever happen. Basically 1.5 down 1 up is good, and then, money wise max of probably $90 a month, telephone service, I don't really know I just use my cell phone which is with Viaro yes I mean

7 miles for these radios is a piece of cake. You need a source, like a friends house in town where they can get the internet and then just hop it to you. Split the cost with the friend and you both come out good. It really works. You need line of sight like from roof top to roof top.
