Mobile Broadband Free Netbook Deals

By Cooper Jones

2008 was the year that mobile broadband really moved into the mainstream and 2009 looks set to be the year that it will explode. Mobile Broadband uses the mobile operator's 3G networks to deliver super fast broadband Internet speeds for its users. The service is accessed through a USB modem and provides the user the ability to access broadband speed Internet where ever they have a laptop and a USB modem offering complete mobility.

Another key element of mobile broadband is that there is no longer the need to have a fixed telephone line to access a broadband connection. This means that it is easy to move home without worrying about long term phone line and broadband contracts.

Mobile Broadband is provided by mobile phone operators and they offer many variations of packages and tariffs.

A growing option provided by mobile broadband companies is free netbook packages.
Netbooks are gaining more and more market share in the mobile computing market. There are many great models now available from all of the major computer manufacturers. They are called Netbooks as they were designed to be a practical and small laptop computer with scaled down functionality and performance. This is so that it can easily be transported and used to access the Internet and carry out some basic tasks such as word processing.

The netbook trend wasn't actually started by one of the more obvious companies. Although they are now available from companies such as Sony and Toshiba, it was actually Asus that started the trend with their Asus Eee PC.

It is now possible to get the Asus Eee PC with a number of mobile broadband packages from providers such as Orange. The netbook comes with mobile broadband functionality built in so there is no requirement for an external USB modem. This adds to the practicality of the netbook.
