I called Viasat this afternoon and said I’m looking for a provider for satellite internet for my rv while I travel..... we talked about my needs, qualifications and chose a plan for me, we even talked about how good my coverage will be in remote areas. Now I look at the community blog posts and find that Viasat in fact does not provide satellite internet for RVers? !

Ok.... then why did someone just sign me up for it and what do I do now? Nothing has been installed, scheduled for Thursday.

The technology does exist for mobile internet via satellite to RV's. The problem is the costs. While planes can do it, imagine what the hardware would cost for one individual.

Yes, it's been a long time and now so much has happened just not everything. Also, (if) companies wanted to do this service it would not cost all that much to have the equipment designed. I know because I can design a smartphone that gets high-speed internet by satellite with $1,000,000.00 and sell each Global Phone for $2,500.00 each that would kick every phones butt. Look up Zii Labs they design a chip called Stem Cell Computing I was partnering with then around 2009 to try and design a Smartphone.

It's close.  Just a taste, so far.  ;)
