RV Satellite Internet? - Try Autonet Mobile Internet
RV Satellite Internet services are out there, but they cost thousands of dollars and require a bulky antenna on the top of your RV that cannot be used while driving. Sure, you can get service virtually anywhere, but is it worth the extra cost and hassle?
Autonet Mobile Internet replaces a regular satellite internet system in your RV, by using a special router and optional external antenna. With its patent-pending TRU Technology, Autonet Mobile's high-speed monthly service allows for uninterrupted connectivity while the vehicle is in motion. Coverage is based on the nation's extensive cell phone network.
See PPL's Review of this product.
Mobile Satellite Systems are out there, but the Autonet Mobile Internet router will turn your RV into a WiFi hotspot, allowing multiple passengers to connect their own Wi-Fi enabled gadgets to the Internet at the same time. Whether parked or rolling down the road, you can connect to the Internet when you want, wherever you are. The Autonet Mobile Internet Router is designed to keep you and your family from losing connection to our 3G network even when you are traveling between cell towers, through tunnels, and in areas of poor signal. What a great alternative to RV Satellite systems! The router's sleek form is designed to be easily installed in a cabinet or compartment so that it's out of the way.
Have you ever been driving your RV in unfamiliar areas and heard reports of bad weather on the radio and not know where the station is?? Frustrating, isn't it? Or seen dark clouds up ahead and wonder what you are getting into? With the Autonet Mobile Internet System and Mobile Internet Service you can simply log on and check any of the many on-line weather sites without stopping to crank up and use an RV satellite system.
Autonet Mobile's high-speed monthly service allows for uninterrupted connectivity while the vehicle is in motion. The router runs over both 3G and 2.5G cellular data networks to give you the fastest and most expansive coverage in both the US and Canada. See Autonet Mobile's coverage map. Please see Autonet's FAQ (frequently asked questions) to find out more about why Autonet is better than RV Satellite Internet Systems.
Autonet Mobile has two monthly data plans to accommodate your needs. The $29 monthly plan includes 1GB of data per month and the $59 monthly plan includes 5GB of data per month (There is a one-time set-up fee of $35). See the chart below to find out what plan you need:
External Antennas Available
For optimum internet reception, a choice of external antenna's are available. Choose from a magnet-mount or a glass/windshield mount. This choice affixes an internal sensor to the inside of the glass, and the antenna mast to the outside of the glass, therefore no penetration of the glass or hull. Order below.
Autonet Mobile has centralized customer service and provides support for the router network in one local call center. If you have any questions about your service, router, or billing, one of their friendly associates will be happy to troubleshoot for you over the phone.
PPL's Product Review: We have used this system for some months now in an RV travelling under varying conditions. The most interesting usage happened while driving on an Interstate highway in a 'driving' rainstorm (no pun intended). We were able to fire up the laptop and connect to a weather radar site to see how extensive this storm was along our intended path. And it's been very helpful to consult the internet for maps, points of interest, campgrounds, restaurants, and gas stops along the way. We found that campgrounds that offer WiFi sometimes do not have the coverage to include all of their campsites and it was necessary to go to the office or rec hall to get a signal. Since usage is based on the wireless phone network, coverage can sometimes be spotty to non-existant. We have configured our unit with a cigarette lighter plug, rather than hard wire it in, so as to have portability. It typically rides on the dashboard of the RV, but when we are parked in an area of little or no coverage, we can take the Autonet with us in our towed vehicle and go to an area with adequate coverage. When not on the road and operating from home, the Autonet can be used in any vehicle. Overall we find this unit a very handy item to have along to enjoy internet access from the convenience of your own vehicle.
