How to Get High-Speed Internet While Living Full-Time in RV
In an environment that has become increasingly mobile, an RV is no exception to the rule when it comes to Internet access. In fact, with the increase in the availability of high-speed public Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi-enabled technology, there are many entrepreneurs who are choosing to run their businesses from their RV while they travel. Others are simply looking to stay connected to the Internet while on vacation or traveling in their retirement.
Staying connected has become important to many RVers with more travelers desiring to have both cellular phone service and Internet access. With new types of technology becoming available, RVers have many more options for Internet connectivity than they did a decade ago or even just a few years ago. The most cost-effective internet solution for your RV might be a bit unconventional, but that’s what life on the road is all about. Many RVers stay connected using cellular data—using a mobile hotspot or a 4G LTE internet plan but they also have some limitations.
We don’t recommend satellite internet or any for casual RV travelers. It’s expensive and slow, although it does have the advantage of working almost everywhere.
If you spend most of the year boondocking in extremely remote or primitive areas, then you’ll need satellite internet. But if you’re like most RVers and travel through cities, beaches, and national parks, mobile hotspot or 4G LTE will be more cost-effective and will work most (if not all) of the time.
It’s been a few years since we’ve made any major improvements to our mobile internet solution. Given the changes in technology and our evolving needs, it was time to completely overhaul our RV internet.
So, we came up with a new system which is Speednet 4G Lte Router. It allowed us to connect up to fifteen devices to the Internet. And it provided a WiFi network that allowed some communication between devices, like our wireless printer/scanner.
The new Speednet 4G Lte Router allows us to establish our own local area network and connect all our WiFi enabled devices. But it offers the additional benefits of using ethernet connections for faster data transfer and utilizing both 2.4GHz and 5GHz WiFi bands.
