The Mobile Internet Handbook: 2016 US RVers Edition
This is a newer version of the book that answered all of our questions about mobile internet before we even started RVing to set out minds at ease that it was indeed possible! We also subscribe to their RV Mobile Internet Forum which has proven to be invaluable in keeping us connected on the road. Chris and Cherie from Technomadia live and breathe this stuff and are our go-to resource on the topic of mobile internet for RVers.

The comprehensive guide to mobile internet options for US based RVers by full time RVing ‘technomads’ Chris and Cherie of Technomadia, with guest author & mobile internet guru Jack Mayer. The book covers cellular data, public WiFi, satellite, ham, cable/DSL, enhancing signals, installation, managing bandwidth, traveling to Canada & Mexico, entertainment options, cellular phone plans and most importantly – setting your expectations for what life on the road with mobile internet is like. In this handbook, we help you assess your internet needs, set your expectations to realistic, explain your options and overview the challenges of mobile connectivity. The book is written for the non-technical internet surfer to the high-tech geek – we strive to balance using every day language and examples to explain complex topics, while keeping things technically accurate. All so you can best assemble a solution that is balanced between your desires and your budget. Our goal is to make this stuff comprehensible so you can enjoy a thrivable life on the road with a minimal of technical frustrations, and still able to afford the fuel that propels your adventures! We have no affiliation or financial ties with any of the products we mention throughout the book… we strive to provide unbiased information for RVers, by RVers. This stuff is constantly changing, and we keep it up to date on our accompanying website and provide additional services, such as our premium membership group with more in-depth content and Q&A forums. We highly recommend at least joining our free e-mail newsletter or subscribing to our RSS feed to keep in the know. Details are in the book on doing that. (Have the 2015 Edition? Do you need this one too? – This is a pretty major re-write updating all of the changes in the past year, and a complete re-organization of the content to make it more accessible. It also has a bunch of new content covering unlimited data, managing back-ups, upcoming 5G cellular technology, MIMO antennas and more. If you’re actively researching your mobile internet options, we highly recommend getting this edition. If you have the 2014 or 2013 Edition of the book- If mobile internet is on your mind, then yes we absolutely recommend it’s time to update the book. Both those editions are pretty out of date.) Our Mobile Internet Aficionados now get updates for free to the PDF version, as well as updated chapters online throughout the year. If keeping current is important to you, we invite you to join us too. It’s like having a subscription to the book.
