What Hotspot?
Where Iíam at on the Mississippi River there isnít broadcast TV available. I have Directv dish on the boat with the follow me system to hold the signal. Truthful not much worth watching on the Directv system. I have Amazon prime with Acorn and Britbox streaming at home but I spend way more time on the boat. Does anyone have suggestions for a service that is actually unlimited? AT&T phone service works very well in the large majority of areas I cruise with the exception of northern Iowa and southern Minnesota. I may be looking for a unicorn something that doesnít exist in the real world. I use my phone with AT&T service but using it as a hotspot they slow the data down so itís unusable. A friend says Consumer Cellular uses AT&T towers but is cheaper, any truth to that? The marina has no wifi so the hotspot will also be used with security cameras when Iíam not there especially the winter months. Thank you for your sharing your experiences.

Re: What Hotspot?
We have Xfinity at home. Use our hotspot on the boat and can view on a tablet same as watching at home using the Xfinity App. Wife recently upgraded to a phone with 5G and made it a hotspot too. We watch movies at night and she keeps up with the politics during the day. Works very well
