Is Mobile Broadband Taking Over Wireless Broadband?
The rate at which mobile broadband has grown over the years is stunning, and there are even people speculating that it is only a matter of time before it becomes the dominant form of internet connection.
Wireless broadband used to be all the rage, but things are changing fast, and it seems a lot more people are starting to embrace the mobile broadband internet.
Personally, I believe it is only a matter of time before mobile broadband becomes the most used and the most reliable way to access the internet, and I also think it is a lot better than wireless broadband.
In this article I will be giving you my opinion on wireless broadband vs. mobile broadband.
The first factor to consider when trying considering wireless broadband vs. mobile broadband is the portability.
Everybody knows the wireless internet for being the most portable form of internet connection, but things are changing faster than we can imagine.
There are now mobile broadband dongles almost as small as a flash disk, and that can be used without anybody noticing that you are connected to the internet.
One great mobile device that is making things even easier is the Mi-fi modem that makes it easy for you to connect other devices to your mobile internet wirelessly.
When it comes to portability, I think mobile broadband rocks!
Another factor to be considered when trying to compare mobile broadband to wireless broadband is the security.
We all know clearly that the wireless broadband is full of security flaws, and the good news is that this has been improved with mobile broadband.
If you’re connecting to the internet wirelessly you should expect your computer and internet to be hacked anytime due to the fact that anybody with a wireless device/scanner can detect it.
However, if you’re connecting to the mobile internet through a small dongle, you don’t have to be restricted to a spot due to the size of the modem, and you also don’t need to worry about security since nobody can access your network.
Price is a major factor that needs to be considered when it comes to using the internet and I believe you shouldn’t have to pay a fortune just to enjoy the internet.
As far as price is concerned, wireless internet access is more expensive than mobile internet.
The reason for this is that with mobile internet you can use your mobile modem wherever you are, but with wireless internet you can only use a network when within its location.
Most coffee shops and public centers charge you up to $20 a day to use their wireless internet, whereas, you only need to pay a little over $100 a month to use the mobile internet wherever you want.
The final thing you should consider when trying to decide whether to go mobile broadband or wireless broadband is the availability.
Mobile broadband is available everywhere if you have the right ISP, but wireless internet is only available within a region. In other words, you can easily use your mobile broadband service in another city or state, but you can only use your wireless internet within your vicinity.
