    First time for me to use Wi-fi in a moving vehicle. Kind of cool.

    You mean that the vehicle has the Wi-fi device and open it for free?
    I only using the 3.5G connecting to Internet.
    There are many places In Taipei city has Wifi device, but you need to apply for an account.

    If we got interstate buses with WiFi in Greece, then it shouldn't be a big deal at all.

    Couple weeks ago, I took my 4G internet device on a road trip. Very nice to have maps and geo at my fingertips while navigating Florida's swamp lands.

    Yes, there is no additional charge for Wi-fi. I am using an Acer Chromebook, which has only Wi-fi. Occasionally, there is a short lag in page access, but it's not bad. It certainly makes the time pass while riding.

    Is there continuous cell service across Alligator Alley?

    I think so. Verison has a coverage map online, and nearly the whole country is covered.

    I was actually in central Florida's swamplands.

    Upon further review, there is sparse coverage in Alligator Alley (see insert)

    Recently ,there was no coverage on alligator alley area. Near the Indian

    population areas you may have a tower for users. In the general area it don't pay to

    install towers. The government has good communications ,I have heard them ,just

    like standing next to you. It covers any government needs what ever they are.

    Last trip no cell phone coverage.

    Our government just opening the 4G Broadband License for bid, there are six communication companies joined the bid and only four companies could get the License, the money of bid already reached total about US$ 2.577 billions, but still not get the result yet.
