Staying Connected on the Road
As I have recommended in other sections of this website, I strongly encourage all nomads to become familiar with the Mobile Internet Resource Center, provided by the good people at Technomadia.com.
The Mobile Internet Resource Center has taught me nearly everything I know about staying connected to the Internet, so I can work and maintain telephone service while on the road as a digital nomad. They offer much of their information for free, but I opted to become a paid Mobile Internet Aficionado member for about $60/year.
I consider it some of the best money I spend each year, because being a member allows me to learn of breaking news concerning changes to cell carrier plans, new technology and equipment, and other things I need to know right away. It also allows me to participate in twice-monthly live Q&A webinars during which I can ask questions about specific issues.
Currently, they are posting information about how cellular providers are responding to increased need for mobile connectivity during the COVID-19 outbreak. I urge you to bookmark this site and refer back often. Better yet, become a member and get all the breaking news directly to your inbox. You won’t regret this intelligent investment in your lifestyle.
IMPORTANT NOTE: I receive no remuneration from MIA or any of the above-mentioned services. I simply want to share enthusiastically that which has allowed me to become and remain a full-time digital nomad, and the resources I am using myself to try to safely navigate a mobile lifestyle during this very unusual situation. I couldn’t do it without them, and this is my way of saying thanks and supporting their service so it can continue for us all.
