Like everything else, the RV lifestyle changed dramatically when the internet came along. Before the World Wide Web was spun, RV-ers could spend weeks without seeing local news stories. They fed pockets of quarters into pay phones to keep in touch with family members. And for most professions, working on the road was nigh impossible. Now, however, the internet allows people to do their work, banking and family correspondence online, even in semi-remote areas. However, in order to enjoy these perks, you must have a consistent source of personal WiFi while traveling – not always an easy thing to find.
In the early days of the internet, a dedicated campground phone line for dial-up access was a luxury. Avid travelers went to the laundry room or office to plug in, and typically had to suffer under the glares of fellow campers who also wanted to get online. Today, many campgrounds and RV parks offer complimentary WiFi hotspots, partially as an attraction to bring in more guests. However, this internet access can be spotty. Oftentimes, the signal only reaches a portion of RV or campsites. And if something goes wrong, the internet could be completely inaccessible for the length of your stay. We should also mention that some parks still charge for this service – as much as twenty cents per minute, or about $12 per hour, which is an unheard-of rate when cafés, hotels and truck stops offer free WiFi access. (Not that it’s pleasant to sit in a truck stop parking lot while surfing the web.)
The best solution is one you can take with you, encrypt to protect your own identity and use while traveling. Fortunately, that type of wireless WiFi for RV lovers is now available in the form of the WiFi In Motion system. This brilliant technology comes in a kit that includes everything needed to set up a travelling hotspot. Basically, the WiFi in Motion kit creates a radius of internet access that moves with your RV – meaning you can even get work done while on the road!
Here are a few of the benefits of using WiFi In Motion on family trips:
1. Consistent access to entertainment. Stream movies at the campground. Catch up at the political sites before taking a hike. Listen to music on YouTube while preparing dinner. With WiFi In Motion, the family RV trek doesn’t have to be bereft of modern entertainment. And we’re betting that this new plugged-in approach will prevent plenty of family arguments. After all, Dad will be less grumpy with access to his favorite news sites; Mom will be even sweeter when she can surf campground cooking recipes online; and Junior will love being able to see what his friends are up to on Facebook.
2. Dependable line of communication. With this form of wireless WiFi for RV enthusiasts, it’s easier than ever to stay in touch with family members and friends while traveling. Plus, the download and upload speeds are much faster than what you’ll find at most campgrounds and RV parks. That’s because this technology taps into cell phone networks.
3. Predictable bill. If you’re the type of person who requires internet access for work or play, you’re probably willing to pay RV parks for internet access. However, the pay structures that camp managers concoct can be quite illogical. For instance, they may only offer month-long access, a quite inconvenient and expensive arrangement when you’re only planning to stay for a day or two. WiFi In Motion provides dependable internet access for a reasonable price no matter where you’re staying – a good thing for both your wallet and your addiction to the internet.
The bottom line is that WiFi in Motion makes it possible – and convenient – for RV-ers to enjoy both the freedom of the road and a strong connection to the outside world.
