Choosing Wireless Broadband plans
Want to check your emails in the sun? Wireless broadband has opened up a world of possibilities for many users. Its beauty lies in its inherent portability, making it ideal for business people, travelers and students, as well as for anyone who moves frequently or simply needs to access the net from different locations. No longer is it necessary to be stuck in a dour office in order to work, or play, on the internet. So what are do you need to consider when looking for the right wireless broadband plan for you?
Wireless Broadband: Things to consider
It is important to find the right broadband plan before you sign up, and there are some simple factors to consider in order to find the one that will best suit you. Ask yourself the following questions:
- Am I a home, student or business user? Home users have a range of plans best suited to this application, whereas businesses will find that providers offer a special range of plans that are tailored to them
- How much will I be using the internet? Providers have a set of criteria that they use to put users into categories, from high to low use, in order to judge what the best plan will be. If you are a heavy user, you will need a plan with large or unlimited download capacity
- How much music or video content will you be downloading? These are heavy on download use, so if you plan to do this a larger capacity will be required
- Gamers also need a large download limit
- Consider how much time you spend on email, buying from the net, chatting and using browsers to calculate your usage
- Consider how you will pick up wireless. Many laptops have an inbuilt wireless modem (in fact almost all of the newer ones do), but some wireless packages come on USB modems or USB sticks
- Consider coverage in your area. If you are in a remote or rural area coverage may be patchy and inconsistent, and you may need to use satellite broadband
- Consult several providers, or simply do a comparison on the net for the deal that best suits you before making a decision
- Consider whether a plan or a pre-paid option would best suit your needs. The advantage of pre-paid is that you won’t be surprised by a nasty bill, but you may run out of credit at an inconvenient moment
Wireless broadband is more expensive than cable based broadband provisions, but its practicality and convenience make it a worthwhile option for many broadband users.
