Help with Internet

When you guys go camping how do you get internet? Most state or COE parks do not have internet available. So, I am looking at using a company named BroadbandBlue. They use cell phone towers to provide 3&4G internet. Is anyone using this company? If so, are you satisfied? If you can give me some services you use, it would be helpful. Thanks!

I use AT&T 4G iPad. Your cell provider should have something like USB mobile connect for a laptop. Works from 3G or 4G. I would start with your cell plan provider.

I use my HTC EVO as a hot spot for all of our devices with Sprint Service.

When we camp for a couple of days I don't bother with the Internet. When we travel we use our Verizon Hotspot for Internet. Here in MO there are still plenty of areas where you won't get a cell phone signal at all.

AT&T has personal hotspot for iPhone but you need a good 3 or 4G connection. $50.00 for 5GB. You can connect your computer, and other smartphones and share the data. It worked great most of the time. We used other hotspots whenever we could connect.
