Comparing mobile broadband in Wakefield
The home broadband deals here are ones that rely on using a landline to provide you with broadband; either from a BT line or Virgin Media connection. A BT line can also give you access to broadband offers from Sky, TalkTalk and more.
On the other hand, mobile broadband uses the same signals that your mobile phone relies on. You sign up with the likes of O2, EE, Three or Vodafone just as you would with a smartphone, but instead, you get yourself a dongle or mobile WiFi unit.
In Wakefield, you'll find you have a wide choice of mobile broadband deals. All the networks offer 4G coverage, while newer and faster 5G technology is also available in Wakefield from O2 and EE.
Mobile broadband tends to be a little slower and less reliable than home broadband, with smaller download caps, but it doesn’t see you paying for phone line rental and you can even get pay-as-you-go deals. If you’re a light broadband user, just social networking and web surfing, it’s worth considering.
Before you rush off to pick up a brand new superfast mobile deal though, be sure to check coverage in your area. Click the logos below to access the official network coverage tools:
