I'm thinking of starting up a project that will require me to stream video from a laptop stationed outdoors, far away from any WiFi network or hotspot. I've thought about using EV-DO (like Verizon's Broadband Access), but I hear that EV-DO isn't reliable enough yet to maintain anything over 100 K/s (I need something more like 300 K/s). I haven't come up with any other possible solutions.

Google has been no help so far, and this is the best forum I could think of to post this question. Any ideas?

You could use three lines with some sort of router?

Actually, I probably didn't make it clear that I need to be able to duplicate my setup in various places around the country.

In the end, I think I decided getting satellite Internet is the only (best?) reliable way to do what I was trying to do. Unfortunately, while service is not too expensive, installation of a mobile satellite unit is well into 4-figures, which is not at all something I'm willing to pay. Shoot.

Next thing to drive me crazy... Twitter updated its API today, which ended up forever breaking my beloved Echofon Firefox extension (which is no longer updated due to corporate bullshit).
