- - WiFi is everywhere there is a resort or major population center or marina. Free WiFi has almost completely disappeared as the owners of the equipment
have figured out to set them up with security
locks. Used to be everybody just plugged them into their computers
and started broadcasting and us free-loaders were using their systems.
- - Costs of subscription vary from US$25/mo to US$75/mo depending upon the island. Connection speeds also vary from very slow to fast - but never really fast. However there are a few "subscription" services that you can use on many different islands as you journey from island to island. That makes the "monthly rate" very attractive.
- - The secret to success is having a good powerful amplified WiFi antenna
on your end and that it is moveable about your boat. Your mast
or boat structure will block the signal if it gets between your antenna
and the land antenna as the boat swings at anchor
