With people that are able to work remotely what are some solutions to web browsing speed data without having to get simcards everywhere you go?
We've been waiting for low cost , high speed, LEO satellite service for about 25 years, (since Teledesic, or before). Maybe it will come.
Meanwhile sim cards and data plans do a lot, and are easy. But if you are used to a high speed land line, you're probably spoiled and out of luck, I think. Anyhow, it might do you good to experience the kind of speeds that most of your users have to deal with.
NOW, if you are going to be in a marina or near a town there are WiFi
extenders, (for example Ubiquiti) which can work well over a reasonable distance, and I have used a Bear Outdoor Extender for nearly a mile. (Directionality is the key
, also a pain to keep rotating it) .
Then you need to get access from a land based AP.
Most people working from their boats are in a marina and a lot of them have paid to get a land line to the boat
. AND they are not cruising.
