I want full internet access from a sailing boat whilst in harbour within the U.K. I have looked at satellite phones at £2500 to buy and then £4 per megabyte. It seems it will be really expensive. I am told it’s better to use my mobile conected to my laptop, but a friend who did this spent £1200 in a month. I will access financial trading sites with a useage of 84,000 bytes, I will need two of these up at the same time so total of 169,000 bytes, how many bytes to a megabyte? Now this means nothing to me but can anyone out there give me some indication of the costs, I need access to earn money but to be frank I will only earn £1000 a month so if it costs too much then obviously it’s no use. I will be on line approx 8 hrs per day.
Can you advise of network deals on download levels ? Or even alternative methods. I enquired about SSB radio plus modem but its too slow for anything but e-mail.
