Apart from shelter, warmth food & water possibly next most important thing to have while camping is Wi-Fi.

Getting a connection to the digital world can be summed up as problematic at best and impossible at worst when on site. I have shared our method of getting on-line in the video at the bottom of this post and in it I show what devices we use to get on line.
