4G Littoral Link is a 4G (LTE) internet access solution to get internet for your boat – ideal for browsing, entertainment, weather, email and work from boat. The Cat 4 modem supports speeds (network dependent up to 70MBs) It utilises MIMO technology with a single external antenna housing dual elements for fast, coastal range access and incorporates a full function WiFi router so multiple devices can connect wirelessly.
The external antenna makes coastal internet readily achievable and internet sharing on board for everyone. Typical ranges are up to 10nm from the coast so it doesn’t have the range of the dual antenna 4G Connect Pro solution but is attractively priced, easy to install and may suit many small boats looking for on board connectivity or work from boat solutions
4G Littoral Link has an easy to use interface (for wifi network set up etc) and is unlocked so users are free to fit a data SIM card from any mobile provider they choose. However, during our testing, we have found that the lower frequencies used by the Vodafone network coupled with a competitive European data roaming allowance, offer the best maritime solution for European cruising yachtsman.
Operation is simple – turn on, connect to the password protected WiFi hotspot that 4G Littoral Link creates and your device is online for internet for your boat.
