For those just starting out:
Mobile broadband is provided through two means; Wi-Fi hotspots and USB dongles. With Wi-Fi devices you can use a desktop computer, laptop, tablet, or game console with your device; in fact you can use multiple devices on the same hotspot device.
Broadband has changed over the years in several different ways. You now have to choose between 3G and 4G connections. You also have to wonder if 2G is your better option. The following packages supplied in the comparison table will help you determine what is available, but not why you might wish to choose a certain generation of connection over another.
For a short introduction simply remember that as you go up in numbers you go up in speed, but in the case of 4G you have limited access. 4G has not spread throughout the UK yet, although there is plenty of work to make the UK the best 4G network provider in all of Europe in another year or two.
Choose a type above to start using our comparison tables to help you examine the deals currently provided by UK network providers. With all the helpful tools and guides on Tech Spartan you can decide the best package for you and your family.
With a monthly contract you are signing up to a plan that will last for at least 12 months. Most contract plans are available on either an 18 month contract or a 24 month contract. The longer the contract length the cheaper the data charges. Many of these plans do not require any upfront charge for the mobile router device. Data allowances of up to 50Gb are now available which you can view in our unlimited mobile broadband section of this site.
With a pay as you go plan you pay an upfront charge for the device and then top up with prepaid data. This type of mobile broadband is preferable for infrequent users who do not want to be tied to an ongoing monthly commitment.
Whatever type your are looking for we are here to make sure you get the best possible deal!
