Compare and Choose Your Mobile Broadband Provider

Here at Tech Spartan we make it easy to compare mobile broadband plans with our comparison engine. This section of the site is ideal if you do not have a preference for a particular UK provider.

Our easy to use comparison tables enable you to compare packages and all of the key features of the different mobile packages in one easy to view comparison table.

You can also read our reviews and use our coverage tool to check the coverage levels for mobile broadband in your area. This is something many people over look to their subsequent frustration. Some providers have much better coverage in certain areas than others. This is particularly so in rural areas.

With the development of the internet dongle, the Internet has become even more fun and convenient as access to the Internet whilst on the move is as easy as it is to access the Internet from home. Today, you do not have to be at home or within the coverage of a hotspot for wireless Internet access.

Internet Speed Considerations

The connection speed will vary slightly between provider networks and also between the types of mobile broadband device used.

The fastest speeds are secured using 4G USB internet dongles. You can compare dongle packages here. Currently speeds of up to 10 Mb can be achieved with a premium 4G dongle. That is only a fraction slower than the average Internet access offered by home broadband routers.

Mobile wifi provides fast internet connection but is generally slightly slower than if you use a USB dongle. You can compare mobile wifi hotspots here.

The average connection speed today ranges between 3 and 7.2 megabytes per second but with the rate Internet technology is going now, you will not have to wait long before speeds to drastically improves further.

Signal and Coverage Considerations

A crucial factor that we recommend you consider very closely is the signal coverage and strength that a provider offers in your area. Signal coverage will vary considerably based on your distance from the telephone mast. Check it here.

Since mobile broadband internet speed depends heavily on the strength of mobile signals, without enough signal, you will not fully enjoy the benefits of your dongle Internet access. This becomes most noticeable when streaming video content.

It is wise to compare coverage and signal strength before fully committing to a provider. This requires a little research but we have the tools to make it easy for you.

If you have your eye on a certain internet dongle service provider then check first if that company has sufficient coverage in your location. A slow connection speed will become very frustrating and will take a lot of the potential fun out of using mobile broadband.

Comparing Features By Provider

Use the columns in the comparison table to compare key features. Data allowance will be a feature that is important to most people. From 3gb to 15gb packages their is a wide range to choose between. These are monthly data allowances. The amount of data will depend on what you plan to use your data allowance for.
