GaryB said:I've been wondering about this myself for whenever I buy my 5th wheel. Am I correct that if I get the satellite prep/dish/receiver, that I can also use that equipment for internet access anywhere (assuming a signal can be obtained)?
Also is it correct that, in addition to being slow (as usual), dialup would also be expensive unless one had a "toll-free" dialup number (maybe they don't even exist), or else kept changing their "local" dialup number based on their current geographic location?
RVCal said:Regarding the service provider, IMHO, Cingular and Verizon are better than Tmobile and Sprint. Tmobile offers free hotspots which is terrific only if you are in their "zones" which I have not seen a lot in back country or rural areas. Sprint is billed as the fastest data transmission provider but their coverage is spotty, mainly in metropolitans.
Is that for an aircard, the magnetic antena?
I am very happy with my cingular celluar 3g air card for internet access so far but if a stronger antena can be used with it I might be interested in this for our trip out west next summer. Also where did you say you got this antenna from?
