Tim,

The problem with the speed is not in the speed of the wifi on board the ship. The speed problem comes from the speed of the satellite connection. There is just so much bandwidth available. Quite often it is no more than 128kbps or 256kbps. Some newer ships have more bandwidth available.

The wifi booster may give you a better signal in areas of low wifi reception but they aren't really going to speed up the upload and download.

Take care,
Mike
