I'm dipping my toe for the first time into the world of computers and I live in a house with no landline phone connection , choosing to only have a mobile phone . I would like to buy a laptop as my first and only computer. Will I be able to become connected to the internet with these conditions in mind , and if so, how do I do it ?
Any answers please in simple English !! I'm new to all of this stuff !!! Many thanks for your time everyone.

Hi,
You could use mobile broadband,just plug in a dongle into your usb port and it connects using mobile phone radiowaves/networks.Your mobile phone provider may do you a deal,check their website.
