Whether you are a full-time RVer or just enjoy protection against phishing attacks a few times per year, internet access is critical to your road trip. You need it to work remotely, book campgrounds and attractions, keep up with social media, and if you have kids, even for “road-schooling.”
There are several different ways you can stay connected when traveling in your RV, from using cellular data through a mobile hotspot or 4G LTE home internet plan, to a satellite connection. Each option has its advantages and drawbacks, so the best way to determine what type of RV WiFi setup is right for you is to think about how you will use it.

Deciding on which of these options will work best for you is a matter of deciding how much connectivity you need and how much you’re willing to spend on the gear. Cellular data is the most popular choice among RVers, and there are several mobile providers to choose from, including Verizon and T-Mobile. Dedicated mobile hotspots, like Glocal, are another option that provides a solid signal wherever you are in the world (including many hard-to-reach areas), and they usually have longer battery life than your phone’s built-in wireless modem.
It’s important to be aware of how much data you’re using as you travel so you don’t go over your monthly limit, especially if you’re streaming movies or uploading photos to Instagram. A good practice is to set your app settings so that they don’t pull large amounts of data automatically, or to use the lower resolution options whenever possible.
