Once upon a time, we used to have to drive five kilometres to the "internet cafe" - a widened shoulder on the top of a hill where there was line of sight to the nearest telecommunications tower. Then we changed providers and could access the phone from our gateway and the internet by standing on top of our gatepost (which doesn't even get strange looks from the locals because everyone has to do it).
Now, we have one bar of signal in one tiny spot in our owner builder project and two-three bars about twenty metres away out in the paddock and full signal on top of the gatepost. Here's the view towards the road from our closest internet/phone spot to the shed. I quite like it, but then I do spend a fair amount of time out there. I love that the sky is really big once you get away from the city. The stars on a clear night are to die for. And there is one benefit to limited internet - more writing.
