Re: Accessing free Wi Fi and WiFi amplifiers

Something to think about.

I've been down your same path. Was looking at a better antenna for wifi but I soon realized that most of the Marina free wifi sites would not handle streaming bandwidth. I was very disappointed, dang. My friend lent me his Verizon cell modem, wow, works great for streaming. I am now thinking about upgrading my cell phone with hot spot support to provide a mini-myfi within the boat from my cell. I have not tested or tried it but that will be next.
