Here at the Mobile Internet Resource Center, our focus is on mobile internet in the United States - meaning internet sources that can travel with you as you travel across the US.
However, there are times when you may park your wheels or dock your dinghy for an extended period of time, or may even have a home base from which you travel from.
This guide is meant to help you utilize mobile internet options when you aren't so mobile.
Included in this Guide:
- Considerations for Stationary Set-Ups
- How to Find What Works Best in a Single Location
- Enhancing Internet in a Static Location

Considerations for Stationary Set-Ups
The challenges of a stationary internet set-up and a mobile internet set-up are different.
If you're staying in one place for a long period of time, you'll (hopefully) only need to figure out what works best in your given location once. The goal is to find what works best in that location and optimize for it. It's not much different than moving into an apartment or house in a new location.
While mobile internet set-ups focus on having a variety of data options paired with various signal enhancement tools ready to be deployed as you move to various areas of the country - a stationary set-up need only be optimized for a single location.
While the upside of being able to optimize for a single location is that often, once you've found a viable solution, you're 'good to go' - the downside can be that you don't have the flexibility to just 'move along' if the location you're tied to just doesn't permit a great internet solution.
