For our May trip, I purchased a Alfa antenna unit, with 9db antenna, and hot spot. I don't believe we were without wifi, except for a day or two. The unit was great when a close spot was off or down, we could always find one using the 9db directional antenna. Setting in Leverick Bay, right next to De Loose Mongoose, we had intermittent signals from all of the close sources, but had a good constant signal from Marina Cay. I was even able to utilize some of the other boat hot spots, some of them have little or no security on them.

The Hot spot, made it so that everybody on the boat with a smartphone or computer could get on the signal, without a problem. Cost for the entire setup was less then $100.

At Norman. you get a good signal from Pirates, as long as they are open. When the lights went out the signal went out.

What a great list, thanks. I need to do payroll while I'm gone and a little wifi is all I need. I know the regular spots on VG but we may be out and about. Thanks again

If you do what I did, that will work. That was one reason I went that direction. Once you gen the wireless router up at home, hook the antenna unit to it. It becomes a hot spot your settings will hold, once it is unplugged.

Here is a link to the page: http://www.alfa.com.tw/in/front/bin/ptdetail.phtml?Part=R36&Category=105463

I think we ended up with 5 smartphone, one was an apple, a couple of tablets, and a laptop hooked to it at one time.

The unit and antenna are compact enough, I carry it with me in my laptop bag, especially if I am going out of town and end up at a hotel that charges for wifi. I normally can use this unit and find a free wifi someplace.

The one place I had problems getting wifi was in Great Harbor. Foxy has a public signal, but it is low power, so had to go into shore to use it, really kind of smart on his part. I could get it out on the boat, but the signal was intermittent.
