The Best Australian Wi-Fi for Caravans

We Aussies love to pack up our caravans and disappear on a camping holiday at every chance we can get. Whether in the outback or along the coast – caravans are like a second home. As we do our regular disappearing act, there is one thing for sure, most of us still want to remain connected. There’s no doubt you’ll be posting selfies on social media and indulging in some Netflix!

So, the big question is – how do you stay connected when you’re travelling off the grid?

Before we dive in and look at the remote Wi-Fi solutions available, you’ll need to consider your internet needs. After all, you don’t want to miss out on an episode of your favourite Netflix show or worse still, a project deadline because of a poor signal.

The Internet needs to consider

  • Is it a necessity?
  • Are you going to use it for work, pleasure, or both?
  • Will video calling be a necessity?
  • What’s your budget?

Once you’ve got these considerations out of the way, you can begin your search for the ideal Wi-Fi solution to partner up with in your journeys.

Limitations of Wi-Fi for caravans

Remember, you cannot expect the caravan Wi-Fi to work as per the modem at home. There are a few factors that will affect its performance.

  1. The number of users: Frustrations will be through the rough if everyone tries to connect multiple devices. Instead, disconnect any device you’re not using at the time.
  2. Obstructions: Parking under trees and tall buildings may also slow your connection.
  3. Distance from the modem: Don’t all rush at once! But the closer to the modem you are, the better the signal will be.

Other technology to support your travels

To help boost the signal and connectivity, there are some supporting products out there, such as

  • Wi-Fi signal booster
  • Mobile hotspots
  • Public hotspots
  • Good phone signal

To make the best of the situation, consider downloading shows and music when you are in and around free Wi-Fi zones, such as cafes. If you’re working on the go, we suggest you plan your meetings when you know you’ll be in urban areas.

On a final important note, while you focus on getting and staying connected, don’t forget to consider cyber security. Laminar are experts in implementing IT cyber security infrastructure. So, if you want to ensure you’re secure on the go, we’re here to help you defend your castle.
