Well this is exciting. I’ve been using the Vodafone PCMCIA card that allows me to connect to the internet via the mobile phone network. It’s the new style card so I had to buy an adapter which cost £164! Vodafone are full of woes, their customer service is friendly but woefully useless. The service is very patchy, I hope it improves. However I’ve booked the van to get satellite internet fitted in November by a company in Stoke called Isatlan.
This mobile internet satellite dish can connect to the internet from anywhere in Europe and even North Africa so I will truly be independent and be able to live in and work from the van, but also travel all over Europe too.
£8,000, yeah ridiculous money but you know, you only get one life, you have to make the most of it, so it’s about time I started living.
Exciting times, can’t wait!
