Our Guide to Wireless Internet Providers
With most the population now using high speed broadband connections there’s a choice of technology and options available from various companies. For users that need a little more freedom than with a regular fixed line there are wireless internet services, which gives them the ability to use their broadband connection from anywhere in their house or office. Firstly let’s distinguish between home wireless internet plans and mobile internet. Mobile internet refers to a mobile network data connection which will usually be a 4G or a 3G internet connection through your phone or a USB wireless internet device plugged in to your laptop whereas wireless refers to a fixed home broadband connection (usually DSL or cable) which uses a wireless router meaning that there are no cables connecting your laptop or computer to your router.
What are my options?
When choosing to get online you will have one of two options available. Many broadband providers (in fact most of them now), offer wireless internet access as part of their packages and going with these providers is the first option. The second, which will require users to have a good understanding of IT equipment, is to get standard fixed line connections and then purchase a wireless router from an IT equipment reseller. The first option is ideal for those with limited knowledge of IT equipment as the routers supplied by the wireless internet providers is already set up and simply needs to be plugged in and possibly have software from the provider installed. The second option is the more complicated method as any router bought from a store will need to be configured for the provider that is supplying the fixed-line broadband connection. Each choice caters for different users, with the first suiting new wireless internet users, and the second choice for users who know how to set up a wireless internet router themselves.
What is the benefit of going wireless?
The flexibility of getting online anywhere in your home combined with the fact that it is the technology is easy mean this is now the preferred option for most people signing up to new deals. The most obvious benefit is the freedom that comes with having wire free access and no longer needing to use cables meaning you don’t need to connect a router to your laptop, tablet or phone. This effectively eliminates the need to be stuck in a fixed location and allows you to access the internet anywhere in our home (so long as it is within range of the router). Another great advantage is the ability to use multiple computers at home or at work, which means that the lack of space is no longer an issue as users can set their computers up wherever they wish.
