How to text on broad for free - cool kickstarter

by acidbasement » Thu Oct 06, 2016 12:30 pm

My wife and I are getting a couple of these: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/go ... nnectivity

It connects to your smartphone using bluetooth, and connects to all other GoTenna devices in the area using its own radio system to form a communication mesh. So, if enough of us get it, we'll have a mesh covering the whole ship, and we can send texts for free without going through the ship's wifi, which is $15/day I think.

The kickstarter is already fully funded, and they're anticipating delivery in December.

Not only can you text people privately, you can also have group conversations with a select group of friends, or post general announcements to everyone using the system (e.g. "Pina Coladas are on super-special at the Pool Bar right now!").

Anyone else interested?

They seem really rad, but I will caution forum fiends that Kickstarter delivery is an estimate and often not properly thought out. It was assumed I would have my kickstarted copy of Secret Hitler in May of 2016, but I didn't get it until September. So if you're banking on having it for the cruise you might not.

That is true.
I'm getting the GoTenna for daily life, not just the cruise, because cell phone service is horrible where I live.

I'll be stunned if this actually comes out in time for the cruise. Pretty much every Kickstarter I've followed and/or backed has been delayed for months. One was funded last May and STILL isn't technically done.

There is a GoTenna already in production - it's got a more powerful radio, for up to 4 miles range, but it doesn't create a mesh. It would work on the ship, but maybe not so great between a cabin in steerage and the Sky Bar, given all the walls it would have to penetrate.

Internet has gotten better on the ship since last year.

You can get Internet for $18 a day (expensive, but cheaper then it was) and access is better, not great, but not awful. You can easily hold voice over IP conversations, or Cellular over WiFi calls. Its like have 3G style internet speed.

I will likely buy it this year so I can update the app with any schedule changes, and anyone else why has paid for the internet will be able to download them. Don't really have a solution for those that don't or can't pony up for the Internet. Hard to distribute something without a network in place.

Usually like being out of touch for a while but looking though some information I found this. http://www.royalcaribbeanblog.com/categ ... t-packages If this is offered on the pre-cruise planner for $12.99 a day,I get it.The Voom service is on all ships now,so if this wasn't on the ship last year it is now.

Question about the on board internet, is it a price per device? Or a price for a code that you can use on different device just one at a time.

It's per device connected concurrently. Here are the prices I found, but these seem cheaper then what I paid on my last trip.

One device: $9.99 per day
Two devices: $16.99 per day
Three devices: $23.99 per day
Four devices: $27.99 per day
Five devices: $31.99 per day

You can log out of one device to allow you to log into a second device, so sharing a one device plan is possible as long as only one device is connected at a time. You have to go to logout.com web site to kick one device off to allow the other to connect.

I'm not sure exactly what got improved as far as ship-to-satellite communications goes, but pretty much every major cruise line has upgraded their onbroad Wi-Fi connectivity within the last year or two to something approaching "decent" speeds...and I expect Royal will have done this on the Indy in time for 70K.
I was on a "regular" cruise last week and the upgraded internet on that ship (Carnival Conquest) was really fast and responsive. I was able to use Facebook Messenger to make voice-calls (but not video) back home...something which was impossible just two years ago.
--And the plan that I got was their mid-tier plan; they have a cheaper plan just for social networks and an even higher-speed plan that I just didn't need.

I like knowing when both people are on the same page. I don't feel like misinterpreting any signals or harassing anyone unknowingly , thus I will not hit on anyone who hasn't laid it out crystal clear.

But in all seriousness I would never use it on the boat, that'd be less time for kareoke

Lineups are brutal for us small-bladdered people, as a sidenote. Very discriminatory

Thanks!


Can't speak for Firechat but I was able to use FB Messenger in text mode to communicate with friends on the boat ("Where ya at?" "Wanna meet up after ______ plays?")
I made a call home using FB Messenger's voice-call feature and it worked....okay. Dropped the call once. Still better than paying $2/minute.
