Hi all, this is my first post so go easy on me
I've been researching marine
Wifi antennas and need some advice or feedback. I live aboard and own my own business, so good internet
connection is essential. As I've learned wifi connectivity in marinas
seems to be quite spotty, slow and sometimes non existent. I have a data plan I use for my mifi at times when the marina is down, however, I'd like to get a wifi booster to help with the marinas
signal as well as pick up any others in the area.
I've read several threads on this forum and others but must seem to be dated (2008-2010). I'm hoping to get more current
feedback about any new systems out there or what's the best on the market at this time. Since my business relies on internet
connectivity, I'm probably willing to spend a little more than the average person if the system warrants it. A few of the systems I'm looking at are below.
My parents are live a boards and they have the IslandTime system and have been happy with it and the support. Marine WiFi Systems
I've also read alot of good things about the WaveWiFi Rogue system - WaveWiFi Rogue- Land and Sea WiFi Provides Long Range Wifi Boosters for Boats, RVs, and Marinas
I also stumbled upon 5 Mile WiFi in a thread somewhere and it looks promising. 5MileWIFI.com
Many of these sites are hard to understand with the technical info they show and everyone seems to claim to be the best one. I really want to improve the speed of the connection, availability of other hotspots out there and want something that will weather
the marine environment
Any advice/feedback is much appreciated!
