If anyone has a way I`d be interested too! My GPRS bills resemble the national debt of small third world country! Seriously though, its possible to stay online via mobiles but I`m hoping to find a way of linking it with a satelite BB for the downlink side. So far I haven`t found a suitable sattelite modem for a laptop, they all seem to be PCI cards. However this would still work out pretty costly and may not work to well on a boat. Post back if you want more about life with GPRS.
