Stable Remote Access

I currently have an enterprise that times road races and other events (5Ks, nordic ski meets, cross-country running, etc).  My current system has me using some proprietary software, written in vb6, that I use.  When the event is over I upload the data/results to my web server.  I want to be able to time the event right off of the server and take the proprietary software out of the equation altogether.  

I currently can use my Verizon phone as a hot spot but, especially with large events or events located with poor wireless connectivity, this is not stable enough.  What are my options?  I need to avoid connectivity lapses, dropped connections, etc.

Thanks so much!

You should go with Cloud computing with any of the providers with a good internet access to any of the tables or hand held device.

Not sure exactly what you are suggesting...

I think stable connection has 2 point
1. your connection to the internet
2. your provider connection to the internet

then it comes to what kind of software you used to connect, like remote desktop,vnc or others.

I have used Teamviewer for stable connection, even with bad connectivity, with the paid teamviewer, it seems to haev Multichannel routing for outstanding high performance included.

you can try it out and see whether it meet your requirement.
p/s: also, it has come with a file transfer between your point and server that support resume function
I use a Nokia CS18 USB internet stick with my laptop and it works well.

Unfortunately the USB stick uses the same network setup as many phones, so if your phone does not work, the USB stick may not work either. But when it works, I find it to be good and to be stable.

Thanks for all of the help.  @ ElrondCT, your sense of what we are doing is accurate however I am not looking for an internet-only solution.  I am working on several threads here to allow the option of working online when available and, when not available, working offline and uploading to the server later.  Most of the time we are able to work with good internet access.  I just want to enhance that by ensuring that we are using the best technology available and, when not accessible, work offline.
