Recommendations for data feed

I have switched from Dorman to IB and in attempting to connect using IB data, was hit with the issue of too many data requests from NT and realized that IB data was pretty much worthless. now on the search for a reasonable value for real time and historical data provider. Kinetick is very pricey for me - $55 a month for not a whole lot and then I have to purchase subscriptions to the exchanges on top of that leaves me back on the search.

Does anyone recommend a data provider that can give me a decent amount of historical data for backtesting as well as reliable yet affordable realtime data?

I'm lost :-(
