Re: How to Connect to the World at Sea ?

This topic has come up many times. Do a search and you'll find lots of discussion.

You really need to first figure out what you need. Then start thinking about wants. Then it's a matter of balancing cost against requirements.

Bottom line, if you want high-speed internet access from the middle of the ocean it will cost tens-of-thousands for the hardware, and thousands per month in subscription fees. If you can settle for low-speed access to text e-mails, that can be done with some time spent educating yourself, less than a thousand dollars in equipment, and no on-going monthly fees.
