*The "up to" speed displayed in Mb is the maximum possible speed you are likely to receive for this product. The actual speed you will get depends on your cabling, your area and (with non-fibre optic products) time of day and how far you are from the telephone exchange. Most providers will tell you the likely speed you will receive when you begin your online sign up - this may differ from the speed displayed in the table.

Broadband deals explained

Wireless mobile broadband for the most part refers to the kind of connections provided by MiFi units. These are handy, pocket-sized gadgets that enable you to share a wireless mobile broadband connection between multiple users simultaneously.

As with dongles, MiFi broadband users can buy credit on a pay as you go monthly basis basis or sign up for a longer annual contract.

The principal difference between a MiFi and a dongle is that dongles only allow you to connect one device to the Internet. Conversely, a MiFi lets five people share the same connection.

How does a MiFi broadband device work?

MiFis work in much the same way as wireless broadband hotspots that let you get online in locations such as municipal buildings, certain coffee shops and fast food chains.

In a nutshell, a MiFi taps into cellular 3G or 4G networks and generates a mini, localised wireless broadband cloud with a radius of over thirty feet. This signal can be picked up by any devices in the vicinity.

Which mobile broadband providers offer MiFis?

Currently, providers offering 3G or 4G MiFis are Three, Vodafone and EE. Short contract, pay as you go deals or longer contracts are all available.

Using a dongle and router to get wireless mobile broadband

Mobile broadband, which runs on the mobile phone network, is intrinsically wireless. In comparison to home broadband, which needs landlines or cables, wireless mobile broadband can be used wherever you are - wirelessly.

Mobile broadband continues to dominate the UK broadband market and the latest development to spur this growth is the development of mobile wireless routers, also known as MiFi units or MiFis, that can be used with laptops, desktop computers and tablets.

How to use wireless mobile broadband:

  1. Turn on your MiFi unit. Then wait for your computer to pick up the signal it emits.

That’s all you have to do – it’s a one-step process.

Advantages of wireless mobile broadband:

  • You can share your broadband connection with the rest of your house
  • More than one person can connect to the Internet at any time
  • No need for a landline, which spells massive savings on rental
  • You can create a wireless area wherever you go – at work or in the home

Disadvantages of wireless mobile broadband:

  • If your broadband download speed is extremely slow, sharing the connection between more than two or more people will exacerbate this problem, even make it impossible to connect to the Internet.
