I live 1/2 mile from the highway where high speed cable access is available. Cable co will not extend service down our road (only 10 houses).
I have a friend who lives at corner of our road and the hwy. Is there a way I can extend access to my home 1/2 mile away?

Yeah but it will be horrible for live streaming (twitch) or gaming because of severe latency but it will be great for netflix and youtube. there is this antenna thing that extends the range up to 25 kilometers. ( http://www.amazon.com/Ubiquiti-PBE-5AC-500-2-pack-PowerBeam-airMAX/dp/B0145JYL3S/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1458311056&sr=8-1&keywords=Powerbeam+AC ) This one is just to show you what they are like there are others with better deals. Oh and as far as highspeed don't expect huge gigabit speeds.
