One last trip west into the remote Keep River and I want to use my brand new, super dooper iPad. What do I need to get the internet, please?
I will be 100 km from any dwelling and will only need it for 1 month...I do not have any iphone, being a new chum, ipads etc. are a whole new idea.



Cheers, Bobj.

Two ways phone or satellite i would think ,easy if theres a phone signal expensive if theres not!

If theres a phone signal and your tablet has a sim then it becomes the source of internet for everything else or you can use the phone as a hub and use the tablet that way.

Believe NOTHING anyones says or writes unless you witness  it yourself and even then your eyes can deceive you

 

There is only one opinion i listen to ,its mine and its ALWAYS right even when its wrong

 

Its far easier to curse the darkness than light one candle

 

Mathew 4:19

 

"To compel a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves and abhors, is sinful and tyrannical." Thomas Jefferson

Thanks, Phone, but I don’t need a phone at home, only Mum and me and $200+ Provider is too much for one month.
