Re: Internet Offshore

We use a MiFi if your kind of close to shore. 12 miles off I believe.

Someone else suggested to us this:
Marine WiFi Systems

Good Luck!

Re: Internet Offshore

I used an Iridium Openport system from San Diego to Australia for daily email and file transfer to my office (18 months), as well as for Grib files. It worked flawlessly. I just listed it in the for sale section.

I used a Telaurus sim card and bought airtime from them. Their compression and filtering software makes it more affordable, but I did not surf the web.

It is here in Victoria BC
