I would like to get fairly reliable Internet service while out on my boat in remote areas of S.E. Alaska. Seems like toay's satellite technology should be able to help. I'm wondering what is the easiest and least expensive way to do this? An electronics shop sold me a Globe Surfer unit and an 8' antenna and said it would allow me to use my iPhone or iPad to get emails and Internet. Well, what I found is it doesn't get a signal any more than my phone or pad does by themselves. I have an 18" SeaTel Satellite already on the boat that I do not use. It was installed by previous owner for TV service when boat was in So. Calif. However, I'm told that an 18" satellite is too small to get a TV signal in Alaska. Can this antenna be used for Internet with better results? I have no desire for TV signal but would like to be able to have a WiFi signal onboard for me and guests to get email and Internet via phones and iPads. I've seen lots of ads for companies offering stuff but I'm wondering what really works and if this is possible without spending more than what the boat cost to do it? Any input or feedback on what others are using is appreciated. Of particular interest is feedback from folks that have cruised through S.E. Alaska and can report actual results. Thanks!
