Connectivity when sailing

I'd like to write a blog about connectivity to the internet when out and about sailing. I tend to find it easier to use my phone as a hotspot and use the 4G network rather than wifi in bars or restaurants, it seems so much quicker. The downside would be an increased data package on your phone but prices are coming down now. What do members think? What do you do? Do you have any special equipment for accessing the internet. DM me or use the contact form.
