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