What is Wi-Fi broadband and how to find the best deals
If you can get a signal on your mobile phone, then you can get mobile broadband, also called Wi-Fi internet or wireless internet. England has about 99 percent Wi-Fi internet connectivity, so no matter where you are, chances are you can connect to the internet with your laptop or other mobile device, like a tablet or a smartphone.
Wi-Fi security – secure your connection
If you have broadband connectivity to the internet, all you need is a wireless router to broadcast the internet signal. You will want to select security for your home network. You’ve probably read about people using other people’s internet through their Wi-Fi connection. This is very easy to do with unsecured networks. If you have a proper security set up, no one will be able to use your Wi-Fi connection, and they will also not be able to access personal information on your computer.
With Wi-Fi broadband, everyone in your family can use the internet through different devices at the same time, such as laptops, mobile phones, tablets, desktop computers and gaming consoles.
Wireless broadband benefits from fast connection speeds, but make sure that your wireless router will also accommodate fast speeds, especially if you enjoy playing games via the internet.
Most unlimited broadband bundles and packages come with extras, so it’s to your benefit to research the different options and see what you’d like to get in exchange for signing up for wireless internet access, from the HP Deskjet printers offered to Orange customers to the vouchers and discounts other providers are offering.
