Pay as You Go Mobile Broadband

Pay as you go mobile broadband (PAYG) is becoming increasingly popular in the UK as it is the most flexible way to connect to the Internet while you are ‘on the go‘.

Advantages of pay as you go
Pay as you go mobile broadband offers all the benefits of a mobile internet connection without being locked in to any long-term contracts. A simple PAYG dongle allows you to enjoy high-speed Internet access on a pre-paid basis, so there is no need to worry about bills and monthly usage allowances, as you will only ever pay for what you want to use.

How does it work?
First you need to choose exactly which pay as you go dongle to purchase from a range of internet providers who offer PAYG deals. Happily, PAYG’s increased popularity means that there are some really great deals and offers available at the moment. Once you have bought your internet dongle, you simply pre-pay for your internet usage. It works in exactly the same way as when you top-up your PAYG phone, only you will be topping-up your PAYG SIM with gigabytes rather than minutes. It really is that easy.

If you are someone who already pays a monthly subscription fee for broadband and so are reticent to get involved with even more contracts, then a pay as you go package really is the very best way to receive all the benefits of mobile internet without having any of the long-term commitments.

Internet on the Go

Mobile broadband is the perfect way for people who are frequently on the move to maintain Internet access.

Dongle
With an internet dongle, it’s possible to get surfing in just about any location that enjoys decent mobile phone coverage. This can prove to be a Godsend for people like business professionals or commuters, as they can remain online and available even though they are far away from the office. Mobile broadband can also be a very useful way for people who don’t have a fixed residence to stay online. For example, students can use it at their parents home, in their student accommodation or in the library, all for one price. Also, with plenty of affordable pay as you go (PAYG) options, they won’t need to worry about subscription payments denting their wallets.

Wi-Fi
People who don’t have a mobile broadband dongle can still access the internet while away from home by using their laptop or netbook at a Wi-Fi hotspot. These are public areas where people can log-on to the internet through a shared connection. They are frequently found in airports, hotels, coffee shops and libraries, and although many of them offer their connections for free, others will charge a fee. However, even though these connections can be very convenient, they are typically unsecured so there is always the slim possibility that private information could be inadvertently shared or unscrupulously obtained by others.

The Benefits of Mobile Broadband

Being able to access the internet on the go, wherever you are, has many advantages, not all of them immediately obvious.

For example, you have may not have realised that going online with a device such as an internet dongle can often be more efficient and faster than using your broadband at home.

As costs come down, and with many providers offering great deals such as free laptop computers, getting unlimited mobile broadband whenever and wherever you like has also become increasingly affordable.

In fact, as long as you can get a phone signal at home, you could do away with fixed broadband altogether, without paying any more, yet still enjoy faster broadband. And if you don’t make good use of your landline, you could make all your communications completely mobile!

However, with many providers, packages and tariffs around, from pay as you go to monthly fees, you should still compare mobile broadband plans to find the best one to suit what you need. Be very sure what you are getting for your money before taking the plunge.

Top Tips for Getting Better Mobile Internet Reception

Back in the days when mobile phones were first becoming popular in the UK, reception was patchy. It may seem hard to believe now but not so long ago there were huge sections of the UK where no normal mobile could pick up a signal. Happily, the bad old days are long gone and now almost every village has a perfectly clear signal, both for mobile internet and normal phone service.

There are, however, still places in the UK where reception is poor. Mountainous areas always create difficulties and it can still be hard to get a good signal in quite surprising locations. Mobile internet needs a good strong 3G signal if it’s going to deliver reasonable download speeds. If you’re having trouble, here are a couple of tricks you can try:

- Sit by a window or outside if the weather is sunny. This will stop walls and ceilings getting in the way of the signal.

- Change the position of the receiver. The orientation of internet phones is important and can affect the reception you get. The new iPhone is especially prone to this kind of problem. Things covering part of the internet dongle, laptop, or phone can also block the signal.

- Keep batteries well charged – low power can affect how well your device performs.

If you keep having problems, it might be worth changing provider. 3 mobile broadband will cover a different area to Vodafone mobile broadband, so choose your package carefully if you live outside a major city.

Check Your Coverage Speed on a Mobile Broadband Deal

Before you decide on a mobile broadband deal, you should be sure you are aware of a networks speed. The last thing you will want is to commit yourself to a pay monthly broadband package only to find their network is not as fast in your area as it is in another location.

Broadband speed varies in different locations. For example, while a broadband package may be incredibly quick in one area of Manchester, it may differ in another Manchester region.

If you are looking for the best speed in your area, you should ensure you receive a speed of up to 7.2MB per second. Your network connection may ultimately be affected by how close you live to a networks base station, the technology in the base station and how many people in your local area are using the same network connection.

You should be sure to check the coverage network by using a coverage map – and this information is available on our website.

Here at UK-Mobile Broadband Deals we can help you view coverage maps for Vodafone, O2, T-Mobile, Orange and 3. You simply type in your postcode and you will be able to view the broadband speed in your area.

Whether you require the internet on your mobile phone, laptop or internet dongle, you will need to ensure that you purchase the right network deal. We provide a range of mobile broadband deals, dongle deals, pay monthly iPads and free laptops with mobile broadband, so you should be sure to consider the network speed before you commit yourself to one of our fantastic packages.

Connect to the Internet Everywhere You Go

If you regularly take your laptop with you when you are out and about, then you should consider purchasing an internet dongle.

Dongles are an excellent way to ensure you are always connected to the internet, no matter where you are in the country.

While a fixed connection or Wi-Fi connection is a great way to access the internet from home, you cannot take it with you when you leave the home with your laptop.

A mobile broadband dongle is simple and easy to use, you just connect the dongle USB to your laptop port and you can quickly connect to the internet.

If you regularly download or make internet calls using Skype, you should ensure you purchase a dongle with at least 5GB. However, if you only require a dongle for browsing and emailing, you should purchase 1GB.

We can help you compare internet dongles from some of the best brand names in the industry, such as 3, O2, Orange, Vodafone and T-mobile. These companies can offer you anything from 0MB to 15GB. Also, some of our networks also offer unlimited GB for a short contract.

Here at UK-Mobile Broadband Deals, we can help you compare the best dongle deals, and we regularly update our information should they be subject to any change.

We can also provide you with deals for a pay monthly iPad, mobile internet and free laptop contracts. Our service is incredibly safe and secure as we only provide you with comparison information on the best deals and payment will ultimately take place through the networks payment system.
