Mobile broadband is an exciting new technology that finally delivers on the much hyped technology of 3G mobile internet. Using a USB modem device ('mobile dongle') or data card in your laptop, you can be up and running at broadband speeds of up to 7.2mbs per second when you are out and about. There are a number of broadband providers entering this fast emerging market and the costs have very quickly become very reasonable. Our review table lists some of the main players in the fast emerging mobile broadband market.

3G Broadband has been 'just around the corner' for several years, and 2008 saw it finally arrive in the mainstream market, which is why we decided to create our review website. Within the individual reviews pages we have added recently added new functionality to allow you to leave your own review - so if you have used any of these broadband packages please feel free to leave your own experience. A serious amount of money has been invested in mobile broadband, and the service should continue to get more and more reliable as time goes on with very good recent reviews regarding the reliability issue.

Indeed, we are starting to see a trend where consumers are opting for mobile broadband as their main point of connection to the internet. This is partly driven by the fact that mobile broadband does not require a phone line - consumers are used to getting 100's of minutes of free calls on their mobile phone tarriffs, so they are less and less likely to fork out the £100+ quid just to get a phoneline in, and then pay the monthly line rental on top of that, for a phone that they no longer need for either voicecalls or internet connections.

Business users are flocking to mobile broadband as well. Although Wifi Hotspots has promised to deliver 'always available' internet connections, business people have always been frustrated with having to find a free hotspot or fiddle with change to buy an access card and then spend 10 minutes filling in an expense form when they got back to the office. With 3G Mobile broadband, business users can now get access wherever they want, wherever they want, all on one convenient monthly bill. We have collected all the relevant information to allow you to easily review the available choices.
