Following on from my recent post on connecting to the internet afloat, I thought it would be very useful to compile a guide stating the mobile broadband coverage in different marinas/anchorages around the UK. Using this data, you can choose which network would be best to join in your marina.
Your feedback is vital: please leave a comment sharing your experiences with mobile broadband around the UK. Please include the marina, network, and comments. I will put the data from your comments into this main post, and keep this updated regularly.
|Royal Clarence Marina, Gosport||3||“Excellent at all states of tide, and throughout peak and offpeak times of usage.”|
|Royal Clarence Marina, Gosport||Vodafone||“Works very well and no problems with connections, speed or downloads.”|
|Royal Clarence Marina, Gosport||O2||“Works well, not quite as fast as 3 network (as of 2009).”|
|Yarmouth, IoW||3||“Absolutely fine - connects, holds the connection, decent speed.”|
|Brightlingsea, Essex||Vodafone||“The local service is useless but we use a Vodafone mobile connected in to our onboard computer and it works fine.”|
