Mobile broadband is a high speed wireless Internet connection available from most cell phone providers such as Verizon, At&t, and Sprint.
Wireless Internet access consists of two parts:
1. A Internet service data plan from your cellular provider.
Wireless Internet service plans cost about $60 a month for 5 GB of data usage.
2. The hardware to receive and process the wireless broadband data.
Most wireless providers have free, or heavily discounted wireless Internet devices available when you sign a service contract.
Wireless mobile broadband download speeds typically vary between 768 Kbps to 1.5 MBps, while upload speeds is generally limited to between 300 and 500 Kbps.
