How To Get Internet In A Remote Area

Recommended Posts

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.

Thanks for that, Phone. Might have to buy an iphone, but for 1 month? Also, The Darwin is some 600 km (round trip) out of my way. Someone suggested using a hotspot?? But, being non tech at all, it just went over my head when he tried to explain. :wallbash:

Thanks for the input.

Any wifi phone or tablet can use a hot spot ,some are free to use (fast food restaurants especially) and whoever lets you use your broadband will have some its just a case of switching on your wireless (which should be off for safety away from your hub or router)

Be aware though its not really that safe if you use any payment system on your phone as hacking is rife in such places.

 

I was amagining you hundreds of miles away from the nearest town fossikin or opal hunting ,if your in a town you have no problems at all.

When we used to go to folkestone there was no wireless being under the cliffs so every couple of days we parked outside burger king (or something) and used their wireless to catch up with emails etc

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

Thanks for your input, Ches.

Btw...there is a Gulliver’s Tavern in Kununurra and the chairs. are huge, almost need a stepladder to sit on them. Hopefully, the wifi reception is the same...
