QUOTE(Lindsay Richards @ Feb 10 2012, 09:16 PM) *

We have an Android and can tether the laptop to it on 3 G service. Kinda slow, but works anywhere. I think this sort of Smart Phone technology is going to make WiFi go away.


Where we are at the wifi ( campground owned ) is pretty much nonexistant unless you go up to the office. I got a Mifi unit online at Amazon.com to avoid a long term contract with AT&T and will use that when I need to. When we leave here we be where there s good wifi for a while so no need to pay for the service. I can also tether the iphone to the computer with a 5 gig plan. I agree with Lindsay that wifi will probably be old technology soon.

Sounds like we will need to move into the 21st century sooner rather than later.

I went to Boost Mobile, bought a Mifi 2200 (Virgin Mobile)...cost $149 - allows up to 5 units attached to it. I purchased a top up card from Walmart ($50) that gives me unlimited internet. I can now access internet anywhere, anytime, even on the road.

I am from Canada so I don't have access from my phone etc and this worked well. I don't have to worry if any park I am going to has WiFi ... for the record...since Jan 3, been at 7 campgrounds, only 2 have had free WiFi
