For folks that are off grid with no phone or internet, this may help. Here is how one family that bought an off grid retreat in New York state that had no phone or internet available to them and no electric service. They tell you how they managed to get phone service by running their own cable through woods to the closest telephone pole and then the phone company put a box on the pole for them. They were totally responsible for the cable from the box to their retreat and they use a phone that doesn’t require electricity but they now have phone and internet which is pretty cool since they don’t have electricity except what they get from their solar panel. Lloisaida Nest shares all the info on how it was done so maybe someone else that is off grid and not connected can use their idea and get connected too.
