Internet Access in Rural Areas and on the Road

Glenn Fleishman wrote a very interesting article, The portable hotspot for Macworld. The article discusses the use of Verizon, Sprint Netxtel, and ATT for cellular data access and then continues with the topic of cellular routers to provide a network for multiple users. This article should also be of interest to people who must consider satellite access to the Internet as cellular data service is in the same general price range and is often faster.

We have helped several clients set up Internet access services using mobile broadband cards. Some are people who cannot get service via cable or DSL because they live in a rural area. Others are "snowbirds" or they are on the road in their RVs. In the case of my daughter, she was on bedrest in a high-risk pregnancy unit at a local hospital for several months. The hospital did not provide Internet access for patients. She and her husband have continued to use the card to ensure secure and reliable Internet service when the vacation, work away from their home or office or take business trips.

If you need help or advice about using a mobile broadband card for your Internet access, give us a call at
Bob LeVitus Consulting.
