What is mobile broadband?

These days, nearly all of us have data on our mobile phones. But you may not want to burn through your smartphone’s data or battery while tethering to your laptop, tablet or another Wi-Fi enabled device.

This is where mobile broadband comes in. It creates a dedicated hotspot that provides a consistent and strong connection over our mobile network with a small portable USB modem or hotspot

It’ll help save your smartphone’s data and battery for other things, while you use mobile broadband to send files, stream videos, or connect multiple Wi-Fi enabled devices – at home or on the go.
