Wireless in Alaska: Literally

We bore people regularly with details of our T-Mobile plan, which has already allowed us to make phone calls and retrieve data from a number of foreign countries. We learned, fortunately only about $27 later, that it doesn't work in the Alaska Panhandle.

We did pick up AT&T, but figured out somewhat sooner rather than far too later that they are "partners" with the ship's data provider and they cost money. Even in Juneau, the state capital, there isn't Verizon, let alone T-Mobile.

We'll try to upload a couple of photos - the Hubbard Glacier was on glorious display in sunny weather yesterday - while we're in port today in Sitka. Other than that, our next communication will be, ironically, when we're visiting a Canadian port, Victoria, in a couple of days.
