I do the same Steve. Have done for a few years now and find it the best option. Use it for internet when on the boat, and also very useful on journeys such as the trip to/from Norfolk (when Mikes doing the driving obviously!) It means I can browse the net, read the news, shop on line, etc etc instead of just sitting there doing nowt on a journey  I know so well it means looking out of the window can get a tad boring!

Enjoy France - are you on the water ?

Hi Karen, no not afloat, although we did do that one year. We are at a coastal resort near Perpignan.

On the rivers or by the sea - perfect holiday as far as we are concerned! Have a great time. I'm off to help my  friend with her garden today, which I do enjoy,  but a view of the river or the sea would make it even better!

Toodlepip for now, Karen

I normally use my mobile which is O2 as a personal wifi for the laptop.  This worked well until we moved to Ferry Marina where we barely get 3G on O2.

Hence the purchase of the dongle on Vodafone.  So we anticipate using the dongle infrequently of course when on the boat.  We therefore went for a low monthly contract with a 30 day cancellation so if not down for a month or so we could cancel.  I think the answer is Pay as you go.

The irony is, the Vodafone signal is not much better at Ferry Marina than O2.  My sis-in-law is on Three which did not connect anywhere from How Hill through to Coltishall.  O2 did but very poor at Ferry Marina.

Any thoughts on a Network at Ferry Marina please?

My phone is dual SIM, the other one being Plusnet which rides on EE. I usually get a good signal with that in Horning. We have WiFi on our mooring in Horning, so only use the phone for internet when away from the mooring.

Thanks Steve

So EE is ok in Horning?  Ferry Marina have a customer wifi but we find on our mooring which is just over half the distance away towards Pedros the wifi is very weak.

Other than the wifi we have been very impressed with FM and their facilities

Horning is one of those places where phone signals vary so much. I used to be with Vodafone, but where we are on Grebe Island, it was very hit and miss, while others I know say they have no problems. EE works for us on Grebe, yet move a couple of hundred yards and it may not.  My other sim on 3 is useless on the mooring.
