Internet-wifi on the move

I wonder if someone can tell me how to get internet-wifi in the motorhome. In some countries they can clone the SIMcard and just have a second router but I have been told that cannot be done in UK.

Does anyone know anything about these things?

Our SMARTtv works via the wifi in the house but when travelling, no signal even when the ariel booster is on.

Re: Internet-wifi on the move

You’ll need a 4G/5G router and a SIM card from a network provider

Re: Internet-wifi on the move

Something like this - easy to wire into the motor home and compatible with decent external antennas.

Chuck a sim in it and you’re good to go.

Is exactly what I use it for.

the interface is horribly slow - painful to use, but once setup is done you can forget about it.

Yes you’ll need a dedicated sim for it, which provider you choose probably comes down to coverage in the areas you frequent...

Re: Internet-wifi on the move

Does the TV not have a connection for a terrestrial antenna (aerial) or satellite feed?

Many motor home or caravan users have portable satellite dishes and/or DTT (freeview in UK) rather than expensive data plans.
