How To Get Internet In An RV


You want all of the modern conveniences an RV can give you:
comfort, electricity, and entertainment. But there’s one aspect of modern
living that no RV owner should have to do without: the internet. With internet
access, you can stream your favorite movies and shows no matter what time it
is, or look at local maps. Without it… well, let’s just say you’ll probably
want to find it in a hurry. Here are a few ways to get internet in an RV.

Ask The Right

Your Internet connection will depend on your individual
priorities. For example—do you need internet access in your RV in the first
place? If you want to use your RV as a way to get away from the world, then you
might want to avoid it. But let’s be honest: the internet is part of modern-day
living, and if you spend much time in your RV, you’re probably going to want

How you go about that will depend on your individual
priorities. For example, if you live in an RV often enough that you need
Internet 24/7, you’ll likely want to think about satellite internet access.
Let’s look at some of the options—including satellite—to gauge which might be
right for you.

Options for RV
Internet Access

Here are some of the most popular options for ensuring your
RV has internet access:

  • Satellite
    There are a lot of advantages to satellite internet. All you need
    is clear access to the southern sky and, voila, you’re connected. However,
    there will be some disadvantages to this option as well. Speed will likely vary
    depending on positioning. You’ll also find that the price can be a sticking
    point, depending on your budget.
  • Public
    Tapping into this resource is possible with a wide range of devices,
    with the obvious caveat that you’ll be dependent on specific locations. While
    this is often free or inexpensive, you’ll want to make sure that you follow all
    local rules and understand that the variability means you’ll have almost no
    predictability when it comes to when you can use WiFi on your terms.
  • Cellular
    While it can be inconsistent when it comes to speed, cellular
    internet access can be a tremendous advantage for people who want to stay
    mobile without losing their connection.
  • Fixed
    location internet.
    Plugging in your RV to a landline Cable/DSL connection
    will be fast and consistent if the source is—but it requires that you have the
    hardware and location to pull off such a connection.

Using a wide degree of wireless devices, you can access any
of these internet solutions from a wide range of places in your RV. Make sure
that you choose a solution that makes the most sense for your lifestyle and
your needs. If you want to stay connected during long trips, remember that the
quality of your connection matters—a lot.
