KVH Trac vision

Looking at a boat with HVH Tracvision installed. Is this a realistic internet communication option for cruisers? The dome is mounted with the radar dome on a mast off the stern quarter about ten feet tall. Not my first choice for locating them but that is where the PO put them.
Opinions?

Re: KVH Trac vision

Just curious, where would you have put the thing?
Pole is about the only viable option that I can come up with
Do you know the model number, like is it an M3, or maybe a TV3 ?

Re: KVH Trac vision

The kvh dome and radar dome are pole mounted off the stbd quarter by the PO. Will check again to see if it is trac vision or trac phone. Suspect trac vision as there are tv's in every cabin and main bulkhead in saloon!!
Just had our offer accepted so going back to look in more detail during the survey. The broker indicated tv and Internet were received.
