Help Me Choose: Mobile Broadband
Stay Connected Online Virtually Anywhere
|Unlike wireless cards‚ which require WiFi routers, local networks and hotspots for internet access, mobile broadband provides wireless internet access directly through mobile phone networks at average download speeds up to 1.4 Mbps* or about as fast as a wired broadband connection. Mobile broadband is designed to connect anywhere within your carrier’s broadband coverage area; generally, this means the same places you can make a cell phone call, with the same limitations.*|
|Dell offers built-in mobile broadband cards that are designed to provide performance advantages over external cards, and offer the convenience of an all-in-one solution. This means no more lost or broken cards, and no more forgetting to bring the card along when you’re on the road. |
You can access this service by choosing a built-in mobile broadband card with the carrier of your choice for your new Dell laptop and activating service with AT&T, Sprint or Verizon Wireless. After checkout, you will be directed to Dell’s mobile broadband activation center to sign up for service with your chosen carrier. Please note that even though you can select your service plan at checkout, your service charges will not begin until you receive your laptop. If you choose not to sign up for service at the time of purchase, simply call Dell’s activation center when you receive your laptop to select a service plan and you can activate mobile broadband service at that time.
