What is wireless broadband?

Wireless broadband uses the 4G mobile network in the same way your mobile phone connects to the internet (rather than using cables under the ground like DSL/copper or fibre), this is what makes it wireless. Plug your modem in and get connected, that simple!

 
It's a great option as an alternative to a DSL/copper connection or if you're in an area where fibre isn't available yet or you don't want it installed. It's best suited for small to medium households using services like web browsing, email and basic video streaming where there are only a couple of people using the connection at the same time.

Wireless is best for:

Small/medium households who are  casual internet browsers.

 
  • Video conferencing and calling
    With a smaller number of participants and there aren't other devices using the connection at the same time.

  • HD video streaming
    Works best if you don't have other devices using the connection at the same time you're streaming HD videos.

  • Basic online gaming
    That don't require fast reactions.
