If you are in London today and in Switzerland next month and then back in the UK again – you are probably looking for a shiny no-strings-attached mobile broadband deal.
You are in luck. An array of operators has a great and competitive selection of deals on a prepaid basis. In case you were wondering what that means – it’s simply another way of saying PAYG (Pay as You Go): you top up and you get access to the web. Pretty simple.
In fact, mobile broadband is integrated into the majority of smartphones and tablet computers. This means that your browsing data allowance is most likely incorporated in your contract along with calls and texts.
However, if you prefer to browse the web on the go on your shiny new laptop or Mac, you can simply get a portable internet dongle. Just like smarties and tablets, these too can come on a contract or on a prepaid basis. All you need to do is put some cash, get a data allowance and browse away until you need to top up next time.
This is a brilliant solution if you just moved to a new property and your fixed-line broadband provider is taking his sweet time to come and install internet in your new crib. You can grab a prepaid dongle on a 30 day contract, and after you had used up your allowance and loved the service you can top up once more or never again – up to you.
Light users consider mobile broadband a cash-saver as it allows them to escape the pesky landline charge. If you go online to shop around a bit, read the news or check your emails, there is no need to splash out on a fixed-line internet service as portable web access can save you money.
However, it’s worth mentioning that a dongle is probably not going to be the ideal solution for those who like steaming videos, downloading tons of songs and movies as well as playing online video games. First of all, the data allowances are too small and the speeds are too slow.
If you are a heavy broadband user, you should look at high-end fibre broadband deals. These will give you access to unlimited data usage as well as lightning-fast speeds reaching up to 120Mbps. Of course, you can still get a prepaid mobile broadband deal, but treat it as a complementary service to your fibre package rather than an alternative.
But before penning any papers with ISPs, it’s wise to compare and contrast all the internet deals that are out there. Luckily for you, that’s what we do. That even rhymed.
