Delaware no longer have to log off the Internet. The ferries have added WiFi on board and at the terminals, thanks to Comcast (Nasdaq: CMCSA) at Lewes and Sprint (NYSE: S) at Cape May. On board the vessels, which take all of about 45 minutes to make the trip, access is provided via Verizon Wireless (NYSE: VZ) and AT&T (NYSE: T).
