Essential Connectivity For All Of Your Adventures


My brother was about a mile away in a valley, everything was soaking wet, we were 6 hours into the hike and the goTenna worked great!



Seriously the must have item at all crowded events here on out. Used goTenna at a few EDM festivals and never was unable to get in touch with my friends.



My family has used goTenna on several trips in the past few months we've had it. It works excellently when doing outdoor activities — everything from wine tasting in Santa Barbara to touristing around the island of Antigua.



I instruct survival courses and needless to say, in some large tracts of land, cell coverage is spotty to say the least. [goTennas] become a permanent part of my Emergency Bag.
