In this day and age, being able to access the internet while on the move is viewed as a fundamental aspect of business, rather than an outlandish luxury. If you are a mobile worker it is vital that you can access everything from customer records to files stored on a cloud wherever you are, so it is only natural that you would seek the best wireless internet provider.
The good news about mobile internet dongles is that they are getting cheaper, faster and more reliable – and they offer the ideal solution for home working if your regular phoneline internet provider goes down for some reason. This makes dongles the ideal solution for mission critical business.
If working with no internet connection is no longer an option, here are five of the best wireless internet services, to help you stay online more of the time – whether you’re in the city, the suburbs, or the deepest, darkest depths of the countryside.
If you’re seeking speed, Three’s mobile internet is the best of the bunch when if comes to major providers. The network offers speeds of up to 21 Mb depending upon where you happen to be – and is one of the fastest providers on the market.
T-Mobile can match Three’s maximum speeds of 21Mb and comes with its own unique offers. You can invest in contracts from £8.50 a month which come complete with a free dongle or use a pay as you go option. Plus, there are tariffs available for both business and personal internet users.
For just £10.20 a month you can benefit from up to 21Mb, as well as unlimited access to more than 5,000 wifi hotspots. There are a huge variety of options available.
In terms of price, Vodaphone offers bargain costs starting at about £5 a month. Plus, their speeds aren’t half bad either – the company offers up to 7.2Mb (again depending on location). The network also offers the chance to purchase pay as you go web dongles where for £24.99 you will benefit from a stick pre-loaded with 500Mb of data. This is the ideal solution for infrequent users or for use as a backup internet supply.
5. EE Broadband
Formerly known as Orange, this network has speeds of up to 7.2Mb and offers the additional benefit of 2 for 1 cinema tickets every Wednesday. Plans start at £12.99 a month for 24 months, but you’ll have to invest in a more expensive monthly tariff to get the stick for free.
