    Default Re: Wifi when away from marina

    We've used a EE wifi unit - a little yellow box which gives us 30GB a month for just over £30 per month. Had it for three years but feel it's performance isn't as good as it used to be. Also my wife has run the data out several times, claiming to be on the marina wifi but her Ipad has switched to the EE (I've now removed that ability). Has worked fairly well up to recently when away from the marina.

    Personally my work laptop and phone both have 4G data cards in them with Vodafone SIM's.

    I also have a Digital Yacht 4G Connect on my own boat.

    WiFi off your phone is ok for general use but if you have any integrated things on your boat such as IoT devices, WiFi enabled chart plotters, CCTV cameras, remote monitoring, etc... always best to have a "boat network".

    The little MiFi boxes also work well but a lot have quite a few manufacturer imposed limits.

    Any suggestions on a workable solution for the UK?

    Cheers
    Tell us which marina you use has decent WiFi? Have sailed halfway around the UK last year and also a trip up the Med and never found a good internet connection in a marina yet.

    I misread your post as "Wife when away from marina". That is a different topic entirely !

    True, but even with unlimited data, even a temporary installation of any other entertainment applications, is liable to cause the wife application to malfunction and maybe to uninstall itself, causing severe problems with the operation system

    Never believe anything until it has been officially denied.

    Yep, and a restart is a bugger...
