Could Mobile Broadband Boost Your Productivity?


Mobile broadband

There has been a lot of talk recently in the media about mobile broadband, but many people are still unaware of what it actually is and how simple and inexpensive it is to set up.

Mobile broadband allows you to do everything that you currently use your home broadband for, without needing a fixed telephone line. This allows you to access the internet while you are travelling (e.g. public transport) or away from home on holiday or a business trip.

The most common way of accessing a mobile broadband network is via a special USB stick (often called a ‘dongle’). An increasing number of new laptops and netbooks now have a built-in device that makes it possible to connect without needing a dongle. Both these devices connect to the internet using the same signal as mobile phones – meaning that you can receive internet access wherever you get reception on your phone.

There are a few downsides to mobile broadband which also should be pointed out. The coverage does not currently extend across the whole of the UK and connection stability can be an issue, even in those areas that have reception. The speed is great for most tasks, but it will struggle to handle streaming video or online gaming. You will also have to pay an ongoing subscription fee to whichever provider you sign up with.

However, this technology has great benefits for businesses. It gives small business owners the opportunity to run their company remotely from anywhere in the world. Combining mobile broadband with WinWeb’s online software suite makes it even more invaluable as a tool for small businesses.
