As someone who does not watch live TV and will not buy and does not require a TV License, but has Netflix and Amazon Prime Video on Demand anything under 100 Gigabyte Monthly Data Plan is no good for me. I needed lots of Data. Also no fan of using my Mobile Phone for reading Email, watching Videos, Movies and sending attachments. And The Canal Pirate with out fast internet and a lack of data is not a happy Canal Pirate !
In some cases you could be Moored in a Marina which will normally have WIFI. And some Private Home Moorings may offer this service. So Internet in those cases is not an issue. Its more for Continuous Cruisers and some with Home Moorings like me who do want to Travel a bit on what part the Cut can take a Widebeam this size .
With the launch of 4G Routers and wider coverage I looked for who gave me the most Monthly Data. Most are 50 Gigabyte Plans or 100 Gigabyte Monthly Plans are normally thrown in with a 4G Router and can cost up to £15 – £40 a month in some cases. I had previously got a 4G Router provided from my previous plan. As I’m constantly moving address’s due to my Business frequently it made sense, but would always run out of data. And was paying £33 a Month.
I found 3 ( Three.co.uk ) was offering with HOME-FI router unlimited Data £22 a month Get the full offer here http://store.three.co.uk/view/basket/MBBD30012018T134033 Which gives you 1000 GB a Month and at a constant fast 4G Data Speed. The Router does run on 230 volt. But you also can get Go Binge which means you can watch NETFLIX 24/7 and not go through those 1000gb of Data at all.
