WIFI Connectivity Help

Need good connectivity for my Stealth Toy Hauler. Campgrounds never seem to have enough band width.
We work & go to school on the road. Need suggestions for the right solution. Thanks!

Basically, your only dependable option is cellular data and even that has limitations (you need good cell service- 3g is sort of passable but 4g/LTE is usually much better). I have a couple of articles that should help:

#1:
Learn To RV: Mobile Internet on the Road

#2:
Learn To RV: Cellular, wifi, and networks - OH MY!

And finally, a membership to this site for the current "in the know" is a great resource:

(If you buy a membership, please let them know ependydad sent you.)

If you have an android phone, you can download an app called FoxFi. There is a one time purchase fee but after that it unlocks use of your phone's wifi hotspot feature without having to pay your carrier a monthly fee. Any data used with this app is billed against your month data allowance.

I am fortunate enough to have been grandfathered into an old Verizon unlimited data plan so I use the FoxFi app freely when travelling or at home when the wifi goes out.

When work and schooling, you'd be amazed at how quick 20 gigs goes. I/we use a minimum of 1gb per day and that's being judicious.

I also use Verizon with the hotspot and it works
great for us. It is much faster then I would have thought.
We don't stream movies with it. Good Luck
