What is 3G?
A third generation cellular network to provide high speed data transfer capability to mobile devices. It is a mobile broadband service.
- Let us say you need a high speed access to the Internet.
- You have your mobile phone tethered to the Wi-Fi router at home, but you need mobility.
- You subscribe to the 3G service with your mobile service operator.
- Once configured, you get access to the Internet at very high speeds, higher than what you get from fixed broadband connection at home.
- You also get the freedom to access the Internet while on the move.
What you need:
A 3G enabled mobile device
A 3G service provider
Note: The cost of a 3G service is significantly higher than fixed broadband. A 3G dongle is also available for laptops.
