RV WIFI system and plans

randymast

    i recently purchased an RV and have been doing some traveling.  I have found that most camp ground have poor WiFi.  Speaking to a Winegard rep. And he said that T-Mobile had best plan with unlimited streaming.  Anyone use the plan? How does it work and cost.  What equipment is required?

     

    THanks, Randy

        Thanks so much for reaching out!

         

        We do have some unlimited streaming options, however, it is only from your phone. Were you wanting to stream from computers, or use netflix on a TV in the RV?

          If you don't mind low resolution, what you can do is buy a phone that has some sort of video output. Some have an actual micro-HDMI port while other (e.g. iPhones) require and adapter for the power port. You then connect your phone to the HDMI port on the TV and you can stream video to your heart's content, watching it on the TV. But it is not HD TV.  You may also want to double check T-Mobile's coverage against places you visit using crowd-sourced sites like CellMapper.net and Sensorly.com.
