I need mobile broadband for my laptop. As I am new to this I cannot find any info' from 3G suppliers. Do I just purchase one of their modems and use my existing IP or does the modem supplier (Vodo' 02, 3 ) supply an e-mail address. Who do I subscribe to, is it my IP, modem supplier or both. Any help?
Basically you get a sim card and PC Card that slots in the side of your laptop. Then when you want to use the Internet when you out you just plug it in and let it connect. What it does is just connects to the Internet using the mobile phone network.
There are various price plans depending on how much you are going to use it. We use one were you pay a monthly fee and can use it as much as you like.
Becarfull with price plans that charge per k/b. It may sound very cheap but websites these days can contain megabytes of information so it could cost you up to £1 per page. (This is where firefox's ad blocker comes in very useful)
