cell phone signal internet

I'm looking at getting internet on our boat when in Southeastern Alaska, when we are away from port. I think the options are ACS or GCI, as a cell carrier. If I want internet on say a laptop computer would or should I get an external antenna and or a booster? Is this different than Wi-Fi?
Remember the only dumb question is the one not asked.
Should I get 12 volt dc laptop or just plug into the boats 120 ac inverter.
I don't want to fry my equipment.
Okay thanks all in advance.
