Staying connected to the internet is critical for many people, especially if you're on the road full time. Here are some great options to consider, whether for work, entertainment, or just staying in touch with friends and family.
- Mobile Hotspot: This device creates a WiFi network wherever you go, as long as you have a mobile signal. Although it is excellent for keeping in touch with people or browsing social media, it is less likely to have fast enough speeds for work. You may also have to pay closer attention to data limits with your mobile service provider.
- Satellite Internet: When you're in the middle of nowhere and need to get online, satellite internet is the way to go. It's a reliable connection even in the most remote locations. As Starlink continues to evolve, we will likely see more travelers investing in this option, especially if the prices come down. This option will be worth every penny for those working from the road and the one I am planning on having. Of course, it means I have to have consistent power as well.
- RV Parks and Campgrounds: Many RV parks and campgrounds offer guests WiFi. Reliability may be a coin toss, especially in rural areas. I have used the WIFI while camping in state parks when there is no other option, but it requires great patience!
- Public WiFi: You can find public WiFi at libraries, cafes, and other public places. There may be more secure options, but it's great for basic internet needs like checking email, keeping in touch with family, or browsing the web. Provided I am using a secure VPN, I have used this option when hanging out in a coffee shop.
How do you stay connected on the road?
