I'm going to be living on my boat in the VI. Probably moored somewhere, not at a dock. Anyone know the options for internet for boats down there?

Do you have WiFi on your boat now?

External cell antenna, AT&T mobile Hotspot with data plan.

You should be able to swing on the mooring without signal loss.

I agree with Rotor. Since you are on a mooring, Fixed Wireless from Broadband VI would not work well since your antenna would be moving. Look to a celluar data plan. BBVI has many customers on boats at Dock....moored boats move too much.

You can buy a sailboat wifi signal amplifier. They're about $200.

When on STT I picked up over 40 signals (at times). Some as far away as the BVIs.

You will have one problem though, most wifi signals are password protected.

I used mine soley to connect to my resort wifi signal from my condo.
