A possibility might be satellite. They now have pretty good satellite services. But they tend to be expensive. Whether its available will depend on if there is a satellite in orbit above your area.

There are internet accelerator programs that use background time while you browse pages to pre-load likely pages, and other services that compress data before it is sent to you to artificially inflate your download speed -- but really, there is no substitute for a faster internet plan. Contact your internet service provider to see if they have any options. Other than that, there is no hardware method to speeding up your connection.

There's not a lot you can do I'm afraid, unless you can find someone with a wi-fi connection and a high speed internet.

What speeds are you getting ?
