We are always hungry for online updates, mails, feeds and with the facility to access the World Wide Web through mobile Internet, we are even hungry for more. But, before we start swiping and typing to get to our destination on the web, we need to take care of the most basic thing. The mobile internet service â€“ what is the best for us? To determine the best mobile internet connection, you need to ask five questions to the Internet service provider and of course, to yourself. So, what are they?
Which mobile internet service is for me â€“ 3G or 4G?
3G and 4G mobile internet service stand for 3rd generation and 4th generation of mobile internet service. These two levels of mobile internet connection come with different level of speed. While 3G Internet connection is mostly prevalent than 4G, however, it offers comparatively lower range of Internet speed than 4G. And also check if your mobile handset supports 4G network or not before you buy 4G broadband mobile internet connection.
How much am I going to use mobile internet connection?
Where are you going to use mobile internet service and what will you use it for? If you are going to download heavy content like movies or watch a lot of sitcoms or TV series on the go or share photos, then opt for a mobile internet data plan with massive data transfer plan. Hence, be prepared to spend more on your mobile wireless Internet service.
Can I take a test drive?Â
It is advisable not to take the plunge without making sure the Internet service will work in localities including your home, office, nearest Starbucks outlet, friendsâ€™ places etc., where you most frequent. Hence, ask mobile ISPs to if you can try using it beforehand. Focus on mostly used websites, upload or download an image, also try downloading a slightly heavier file like an audio or video clip to ensure that you are going to get the Internet speed that is promised.
Am I going to tether your wireless mobile internet connection?Â
Many of us tether our mobile Internet packages to our notebook to use mobile phone as the modem. If you are going to use your mobile internet service, then check in that the SIM and the plan supports tethering facilities.
Is tech support available?Â Â Â
Does the mobile internet service provider offer round the clock technical support service or offer for the day only? I would recommend you to scour on its official websites and online forums to get further information and learn from existing customersâ€™ testimonials and complaints.
Though you are going to spend considerable amount of time in asking questions to yourself and the mobile internet service providers, taking test drive and researching over the Internet â€“ but, your homework on research and comparison will save you from wasting time and money in arguing and complaining over poor mobile internet service.
