Pontoon Boat Information


Regarding WIFi

Unfortunately there is no Cable internet, or DSL offered in this area. We feel that until there is, we can not offer high speed internet at this home. There is satellite internet, and cell service internet, but due to strict bandwidth limits these are not options either. The most expensive plan offered would literally be used up by the average family in less than a weeks time. This would then leave the rest of the months guests without internet, and very unhappy... 

Easy Solution - Most smart phones can be turned into wireless hotspots for $10-20 a month. This may not be the best for streaming the latest episode of "Breaking Bad", but should get some usable access if needed. Just a call to your wireless provider will get this set up. Cell service is usable (definitely not amazing), with Ve**zon being the best, A*&T next. All others however, would not be very usable for internet. Also free tethering apps are offered for many smart phones on the Android Market as well. These allow your computer to be tethered (Via USB cable) to your cell phone for free in many cases! 

If this doesn't work, there are coffee shops, restaurants, etc, in town with excellent high-speed internet available.

Even Easier Solution - Your on vacation for crying out loud, give it a rest for a week! What better excuse to get away from work than to tell everyone you don't have internet!

Now get out your fishing pole, and relax!
