Assessing Your Mobile Internet Needs

There is currently no one single technology for keeping online that is appropriate for all the different situations mobile folks might find themselves in. Each RVer or cruiser usually ends up with a slightly different approach that best fits their travel style, needs, technical comfort level and budget.

This guide will help you understand the considerations to keep in mind when deciding what equipment and plans you need to best meet your needs.

The key to successfully staying online while being mobile is having multiple options to try at each stop. We call this a Mobile Internet Arsenal - the tools you carry with you.

It might consist of multiple cellular carriers, signal enhancing gear, WiFi equipment and perhaps even satellite. And the costs can add up, as can the complexity.
