Internet and cable service for RVing

Does anyone know where RVers purchase the material so that they can have cable and Internet service and still travel?

I know they have it because people in this RV park come and go and I notice they have satelites and wireless Internet. They travel all over the country.

I may be moving again to another park. In a year when I, hopefully, start grad school, I will be moving again. However, I hate to keep having to get new cable and Internet service only to have to move again and sign up again somewhere else.

Thanks!

I want to know too. Now that we have a laptop, it would be nice to get email etc while camping.

I know it exists because several RVs come and go and one stays here because he is a heart surgeon. They have the wireless because I can see what names they have chosen for them. Next time I see the heart doctor, I will ask him. RV stores might know. But, then again, I want to also know about the experiences of others. Thanks!

I went to Google and put in "wireless internet for rv" and got several companies that you could look into if you want something to look at.

Still, word of mouth with something like this is probably your best bet.

Just thought it might give you something to look at.

Tami, thanks! I typed in bunches of things such as Internet, RV, and statelite and couldn't get anything. I guess it was the way I was searching. I will let ya'll know if I find anything.

Thanks!

Hi! My folks RV three months out of the year. They have a satellite dish and service from "The Dish" for tv. And through the RV park they were staying in, they got internet service for about $5 a month. The person had an antenna that he sold to my folks that was wired to a card that was inserted into my Mom's laptop. She was then able to send and receive email or surf the internet. I think she was then able to use his wireless.

Hope this helps,

Thanks Auntie. I do have a wireless card. The place I am moving to have the capabilites for telephone and cable. But, since everyone requires a down payment and I will be moving again within a year, I figure that it might me cheaper to get something that I can take with me. I will check that place out that you mentioned.

I am guessing that whatever service the RV park offers it is probably high speed and not slow dialup, right? I think it would be in order to be useful?

Not all RV parks offer Internet services. I am moving to a mobile home park and will have to get my own cable and Internet services there by August. I hope that answers your question.

We have stayed in RV parks that had internet service. Your computer must have a wireless card. Most services cost $30.00 a month or $5.00 a day. It is east to set up if you have a wreless card-as soon as your computer is turned on it should recognize the wireless network.
