“How Do I Get Internet in My RV?”

RV owners love to ask us this question and we’re happy to answer it. The best way to get fast internet in your RV is to get a cell phone signal booster.

Internet for RVs is hot right now and it’s no surprise. “Getting away from it all” doesn’t mean what it used to. Today, most RVers want to be connected wherever they go.

  • Empty nesters want to stay in touch with their grandchildren.
  • Younger RVers want to stream TV and movies.
  • And many full-time RVers need a connection so they can work from home.

So, is there an on-the-go internet solution for ALL of them? Yes, but it’s not what you think it is. The solution you’re seeking is to get a cell phone booster for your RV.

What About Satellite Internet for RVs?

Satellite internet works great on boats but not on RVs. The domes used for satellite internet are 45cm-60cm in diameter. That’s the diameter of the dish itself, and the dome used to house it is ever bigger. You’ll run the risk of tearing it off the top of your camper at every low-clearance overpass. Plus, these dome systems typically weigh about 50 pounds! You don’t want that on your roof all the time. So, satellite internet isn’t a viable solution, but cell boosters are. Now let’s discuss…

What a Cell Phone Booster is

Well, you probably already know something about these devices. We certainly write about them quite a bit, and the manufacturers have their commercials, too. Here are the basic takeaways that you, Mr. or Ms. RV owner, need to know:

  • Cell boosters simultaneously improve incoming and outgoing cell signal.
  • This helps end dropped calls and missed texts.
  • It also gives you fast internet speeds.
  • These boosters work with all cell phone carriers in the U.S.
  • They boost 4G, LTE, and 5G signals.
  • They also work with all cellular phones.
  • They boost the signal of multiple users simultaneously.
  • There are no monthly fees.

What this all means is a cell phone booster delivers fast internet inside your RV, motorhome, or camper.

With that out of the way, let’s get back to discussing what’s of interest to RV owners like you.

Important Cell Phone Signal Booster Info for RVers

A cell booster might not improve your signal everywhere you go. We’re talking to the boondockers, of course. Some state parks and RV campgrounds are way out in the middle of nowhere. If no cell signal can be found in these places, your booster won’t help. The general rule is that if you can get at least half of a bar on your phone, a signal booster will do its job. Plus, the cellular carriers are putting towers up all over the place. This keeps reducing the number of dead zones across the country.

“How Much Does a Cell Booster Cost?”

There are three cell phone booster kits that we recommend for RVs. These devices are made by weBoost, a top manufacturer. The price range for these products is $479.99-$649.99.
