Mobile Broadband

Understanding Mobile broadband

Mobile Broadband subscriptions are expected to reach 1 billion in 2011: so many of us are already users, but do we all know how it works?

Mobile broadband technology allows you to do everything you usually use your broadband connection for without needing a fixed-line telephone connection. This means you can access the internet while you’re on the move or away from home. Send email, visit websites — even watch streaming TV and download files — it’s all possible.

Mobile broadband works using either a small portable USB modem (often called a dongle, or broadband stick), a data-card or a built-in device (on some laptops and smartphones) to connect to the internet using the same signal mobile phones use. This means, wherever you are, as long as you can get a signal from your mobile broadband provider, you can connect to the web, unlike Wi-Fi internet access, which is limited to a few meters around the emitting router.

Most of us have used this technology on our mobile phones through 3G, short for third generation technology. This allows users to access the internet at high speeds through a 3G network. This is made possible by two complementary technologies, high speed download and upload packet access.
