Wireless broadband connectivty on the ice

4 posts in this topic

Ocassionally work requires me to get connected to the Internet even on days off. Knowing I was going to be on the ice when this occurred I bought a aT&T wireless broadband card. Anyone else have one? I'm trying to find out how good the coverage is. I'll fish in the Brainerd area, Mille Lacs, Upper Red and around Bemidji. If anyone has any info I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Internet?? what the heck is that?? We don't have any such thing "Up" here.

Well...a big drawback of the Bemidji area is the Monopoly of cell providers. Basically still just Cell 1 and Unicell. Cell 1 is terrible and I think Unicel and Verison are merging.

My sister Blackberry works great here. She runs her laptop off it on Plantan and at my place near the North end of Lake Bemidji. She has it through Verizon in Grand Forks or Crookston. No idea about URL. I do know that I had Cell 1 for a day and had no signal on URL but my buddies from Rochester and The Cities did. Needless to say I called from the lake and cancelled.

      I'll stand behind Steve's ice rods!   I was able to get a nice collection of them last week.  Some panfish rods that I hope to work out tomorrow, and some walleye/laker types that I used today.  Great feel, light, and well built.       I connected with a couple mid-20 inch lakers today and couldn't have enjoyed the fight any better on another rod.  Very happy!   Thanks Steve!

      Not bad! Was the ice soft all they way through?
