For Everyone’s Everything.
Every month, a portion of the revenue from each Coastguard Endless WiFi plan goes back to Coastguard to support saving lives at sea.
Plug & Play WiFi
Coastguard has teamed up with Wireless Nation to bring members WiFi you can use at home and in your boat, bach, or vehicle.
It is like having a portable WiFi bubble wherever you go. Everyone’s devices can stay online on your journey and at your destination — phones, watches, tablets, laptops, and eReaders can automatically connect to your onboard WiFi, and stay connected.
Simply unplug it from the power outlet at home and plug it into your boat, bach, or vehicle! Use it year-round or just over the summer.
Testimonial from Coastguard Northern Region CEO, Callum Gillespie:
“ Wireless Nation’s lifestyle broadband package was quick and easy to set up, just plug it in and away you go. It was great to be connected wherever we were out on the boat, especially in areas with little cellphone coverage. It kept my teenagers happy so I’m happy!”
Put it on hold
While many members use the connection in their home as well, you can put the connection on hold and only pay for the months you require. We’ll just need 30 days’ notice when you wish to put it on hold.
There’s an investment of $299 (already discounted for Coastguard members) for a powerful 4G enabled RBI Modem.
Shipping & Handling: $14.95.
12-24V Adapter (optional)
You can purchase a 12-24V adapter for $69.90 during signup, meaning the modem can run off 12-24V and keep the modem safe from voltage spikes. Please note: the modem includes a 230/240V wall plug for mains power.
