Over the last 10 years, internet access speeds have increased dramatically. Now, of course, you are also able to have broadband speeds through devices connecting to the internet through mobile phone 3G connections. It’s simplicity is one of it’s major advantages. A ‘dongle’ must be connected to the computer whether it be a desktop, laptop or netbook, then the installation process takes place either with the operating system’s own default files or with the dongle manufacturer’s supplied files, and that’s it!
Connecting to a 3G mobile broadband network is a lot easier than connecting through a home broadband ADSL connection. Usernames and passwords are not needed and there are no SIP settings or router settings to adjust in order to connect. There are a variety of mediums in which mobile broadband is available through including mobile phones, USB dongles, USB modems and laptops with 3G compatibility incorporated.
Keep in mind that mobile broadband is not the same as WIFI. It’s 3G, which is a different technology altogether. With WIFI you connect to the internet via a wireless access point, which means that you have to be within a very short range of a wireless ‘hot spot’. Mobile broadband on the other hand works anywhere that you can get a mobile phone signal. 3G quite literally means the third generation of mobile phone standards and technology. It enables network operators to provide a wide range of advanced services via the mobile network, such as wide-area wireless voice telephony, video calls and broadband wireless data.
Listed below are the advantages of using 3G mobile broadband technology:
Convenience and portability – Mobile broadband is very convenient to use. You can connect to the internet from any location so long as you have a device with mobile broadband capabilities, a computer and a network reception.
No land line necessary- Whether you want to access the internet at home or whilst traveling, you don’t won’t have to use any cables. One day in the not too distant future, home broadband via a fixed telephone network will probably be a thing of the past.
Flexibility – You can use a mobile broadband dongle on as many different computers as you please. You could use it on your work laptop during the day, pop it into your computer at home in the evening, or lend it to a friend or family member who doesn’t have internet access.
