Wireless Technology: How it Works
Mobile broadband uses a combination of wireless network and wired hardware technologies to connect remote homes and businesses to the internet. Most Americans have access to one of two distinct mobile broadband networks: 4G LTE or 3G. These two networks transmit online data between a local hub (a cellular tower) and any number of devices using radio waves.
From start to finish, the major technologies that make installed mobile broadband possible include: a mobile broadband network, a cellular modem, a wireless router, a sim card, and an optional booster antenna. Learn a little more about each technology below.
