Description of service

I am currently paying $44.99 a month for my mobile broadband internet access. There were no startup up fees associated.

Review of Service

The actually service I receive from my broadband provider is wonderful. It allows me to work remotely and there are very few places that I have had a problem accessing the internet with my broadband connection. It is not a very fast connection, but I was not expecting it to be given it is still a dial-up broadband connection through my phone. But I believe that $45 per month is far too high to pay for this service. Unfortunately because the technology is still relatively new, mobile broadband providers can charge higher prices. In addition, I am also forced to use the mobile broadband provided by my mobile carrier simply because there are not other options, again allowing them to charge higher prices because I have no other options! Hopefully as the technology and popularity increases of mobile broadband access there will be 3rd party carriers that can bring some competition to the industry.


If you are looking to add mobile broadband to your current plan, make sure you get strong signal in the places you want to use it most (i.e. your office, home, airports if you travel) etc. Because if you don't get a strong cell signal your mobile broadband service will also operate slowly.
