When i lived in America and i did not have the internet, i remember finding a company online, which for a small fee, could connect you to the internet even it was far away. As long as you paid your monthly fee, you could connect basically anywhere.

We now live in the U.K, and i am trying to find either that site, or something similar. I cannot remember what it was called (the company), so i wonder if anyone could help in finding a site that will help me connect?

This info is needed very quickly as i will not be having any internet access after the 25th Feb 2015.
I don`t like to rush people but if anyone can help, i will be grateful.

Thank you.

You really have to do some research as to what services are available to you in the particular area you plan on being. Based on your post, it sounds like you need to have Internet service where ever you happen to be. Chuck posted one option. I was also thinking of that along with cellular based which I have here in the States with Verizon when I'm traveling. Or you can also look at satellite which is truly available anywhere you go as it doesn't depend on any terrestrial infrastructure between you and the ISP. But there are severe drawbacks with Satellite.

An old fashion alternative is dial up. It sounds prehistoric but sadly there are areas in the US which dial up is still the only option and many times better than doing satellite even though the bandwidth/speeds are much slower.

It was Wi-Fi. I wanted to use my computer where there was no nearby internet, but the company found me "hotspots", where i could connect and use my laptop (which is what i require now).

There are very few public places in the UK that don't have hotspots, though many may charge a small fee or require you to register.
Since the change that made the provider responsible for all traffic, people are less willing to provide free unfettered access.

Firstly, i aplogize for not getting back to this thread sooner, as my internet was disconnected before i found the answer i was looking for.

It came about that my wife was talking about "bingo", when suddenly, the name of the company i was using in America, hit me.

I am now using it to get connected.

I would like to thank everyone who answered my thread.
