Those that already have a fixed-line broadband connection could be more suited to a pay-as-you-go (PAYG) mobile broadband deal.
The new advice comes from The Link, which has recommended the pay-as-you-surf broadband packages to customers that will only need to get connected on the go once in a while.
According to the mobile outlet, this type of offer also means that users on PAYG are free from worries over exceeding data limits.
"Mobile broadband is changing the way we use the internet but you needn't be worried about how much data your using," says The Link.
Going on to recommend: "If you're not on the daily commute and just want to use mobile broadband occasionally, then PAYG using a 3 dongle is the ideal solution."
Customers using up to 1GB within 30 days are charged £10 by mobile broadband provider 3.
