Use Your 4G Mobile Data on Your Computer, Laptop, or Tablet: All About USB Modems

USB modems (also known as USB dongles) are dedicated devices that supply portable Internet to one other device. USB dongles provide a faster connection than the alternative, mobile hotspots, and are also smaller and, therefore, more portable.

 

A USB modem is compatible with devices that have a standard USB port – so any computer, laptop, or e-reader, but only some tablets (and never iPads). Some USB modems require a software installation to run.

The Next Generation: Five Things To Know About 5G

The next generation of mobile broadband, 5G, is distant on the horizon. There is still so much untapped potential in 4G LTE (which, theoretically, could reach download speeds of up to 100 Mbps) that 5G is not on any American provider’s priority list just yet. In fact, when Japanese provider Huawei and Russian provider MegaFon announced a partnership with plans to introduce 5G for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, they were met with some skepticism from the industry [1]. Three years just seems too little time to build a network that could significantly surpass the performance of 4G LTE.

Over the Edge: Are Unlimited Internet Services Truly Unlimited?

Unlimited internet is like an all-you-can-eat buffet: purchasing it guarantees that your appetite for data is satisfied, but you might consume more or less than what you paid for, and, if you overindulge too often, you’ll start getting bad service.

For the vast majority of users (usually 95%), an unlimited plan means virtually limitless access to fast, reliable internet, i.e. the perfect buffet experience. For heavy users (usually 5%), however, providers offset their heavy use by slowing their connections, punishing their data consumption with bad service. For these users “unlimited” is anything but.
