Staying connected to the Internet is becoming increasingly important with social media, telework jobs, and getting information fast when you need, so more and more part and full time RVers are finding ways to take the Internet with them no matter where they go. And many campgrounds and RV park are also seeing this trend and are offering free WiFi or DSL hookups on the site.
But how, when you are camped by the mountains or in the woods somewhere, can you improve your RV Internet to keep from having slow speeds and annoying data drops? Well here are a few things that you can add to your recreational vehicle to let you stay connected with ease.
When WiFi Is Available
As we stated earlier, many campgrounds are starting to offer WiFi as part of their camping package, but this is no guarantee of high quality Internet like you would have at your home. Things like obstructions and distance from the signal origin will determine how fast and good your Internet connection truly is, but with a WiFi boosting antenna, you can vastly increase this signal. By mounting the antenna on the back or top of your camper, you will have a higher point for your router to connect with to ensure that it can communicate with the WiFi signal.
When WiFi Isn’t Available
Depending on where you stay, you may not have access to any kind of WiFi, so it will be essential to bring your own. The wireless hotspots on many cell phones is, at this time, the very best option for having your own signal. A hotspot is a portable connection to the Internet that all of the big four cell phone providers offer, and with these companies constantly building new towers, soon nowhere will be out of reach.
Of course, the same issues of mountainous area, tree cover, and distance will still play a factor in the strength of the signal which is why having a cell phone signal booster is recommended. This booster will raise the strength to give you all the Internet you want.
Most people love to get away when camping, but with the Internet, you can still stay connected for the important things. If you are ready to start RVing, be sure to contact us or stop by our location to check out our new RVs for sale today!
