Mobile broadband has revolutionised the way we use the Internet. It’s made it possible for us to have the convenience of high speed Internet wherever we are. It’s only natural that people are beginning to rely on mobile broadband more and more. For many of us, a small data allowance is not enough to meet our mobile broadband needs. Unlimited mobile broadband packages have emerged to fit the needs of heavy users. However, not all unlimited mobile broadband packages are the same. There are some things you should look out for before you commit.
Don’t be fooled by the title ‘unlimited’. Most unlimited mobile broadband packages have a ‘fair usage policy’, meaning there is actually a cap on the amount of data you can use each month. While some networks cap their data at a large amount, like 20GB, some cap their data as low as 3GB a month. While heavy mobile broadband users will need the 20GB allowance, 3GB will suffice for the average user.
It’s worth considering what happens should you go over your data allowance. Some networks will merely slow your connection speed down, meaning you are still able to use your mobile broadband without paying extra. Others, however, have heavy charges for people who go over their data allowance. If you don’t keep track of the amount of data you’re using, you could end up with a huge bill at the end of the month. It’s up to you to decide how much data you think you will use and which is the best mobile broadband plan for you.
