Internet Faxing - send receive faxes from houseboat offices

When it comes to your houseboat office, many people are still faxing documents nowadays, and they can receive a fax, or even send faxes from their house boats.

Nowadays with Internet access, you can have a virtual fax machine for pennies a day, and which allows you to send and receives faxes virtually anywhere around the world.

We love our Fax to Email, Email to Fax service

For over a decade we have been using Internet Faxing (email to fax) for our houseboat office, and it is simply the easiest, and the most time saving piece of virtual office equipment that we have. We wouldn't have it any other way :)

What are the Advantages to Internet Faxing?

Some of the biggest advantages of using a virtual fax, or faxing through the Internet are:

1) It eliminates the cost of purchasing a fax machine for your office.
2) You no longer have to buy paper or special fax paper rolls.
3) You no longer have the "out of paper" or "paper jam" messages.
4) You no longer have the costs for a dedicated second phone line.
5) You can access or receive faxes from anywhere around the world.
6) You can create, or send your faxes from any Internet connection.
7) You can now send bulk, or hundreds of faxes simultaneously.

Even though many folks are sending emails, texting, SMS, MMS, the common fax machine still remains as one of the most popular forms of transmitting important documents.

Internet question?
by: Anonymous

So how do you get an internet connection on your houseboat?

Sending Fax online
by: fax to email software

The benefits and the advantages of having an online fax service is very well presented in this post. With the included providers, we can now view their different plans and prices.

We use a dual element Dish. This gives us internet, TV, and phone, all while we are at sea, or in the marina. Cost is about one third of a WiFi hookup. Look into it, you'll be pleased.

Well Bill, I have always kept my eyes open for a reasonably priced Satellite Internet package, and unfortunately, I have yet to find one. If you could reply and post a website URL, that would be great.

Poor Internet performance on boats
by: Anonymous

Our experience with any kind of internet connection has been a disaster. Our marina guaranteed wifi with a hefty annual fee without delivering. In addition when you are sandwiched in between boats, you cannot receive wifi or wireless calls.

At our marina you have to go to the parking lot to make calls and be assured of any privacy. So don't buy into the fact that this is an quick and easy solution. As we all know, nothing on a boat is quick and easy.

Speaking from experience.

Sorry to hear about your difficulties in getting a good Internet connection. There are a few things that you can do to greatly improve your connection speed and performance.

I would recommend having a look at our Wireless Internet Tips for Houseboats page.

On the page there is even an inexpensive High Power Antenna & USB Wifi Adapter available that will basically make a huge difference like night and day.
