Mobile broadband news

Customers shopping around for the best mobile broadband deal should avoid being seduced by the offer of a free laptop, one expert says.

Tarinder Sandhu of technology news provider Hexus has explained that while a complementary computer is tempting, it is more sensible to check the coverage provided by a particular network in the area in which the service will be used.

He advised: "Folks looking specifically at mobile broadband need to consider just how well-covered they are by a particular provider.

"In particular, HSDPA coverage for mobile carriers is important in delivering consistently high speeds, and 3G appears to have the edge here."

T-Mobile recently launched a mobile broadband offer which includes a free Acer Travel Mate 5320 laptop along with T-Mobile broadband modem for 24-month contract customers.
