Yes I have an Iridium phone in my hand, .60 cents a minute for 2-3G speeds, not to mention the latency.
You know I am on a sailboat right now? I have Ham, SSB, Satellite, vhf, cellular, wifi, bluetooth, etc. I would trade them all instantly for a nice fiber connection : )
Mostly what I do is use Cellular, like now. I select anchorages based on Cell tower access.
The most importing part of sailing is communications. . .
