HMC Mobile Broadband
 
Stay connected online virtually anywhere.

Unlike wireless cards that require Wi-Fi routers, local networks and hotspots for internet access, cellular mobile broadband provides wireless internet access directly through cellular phone networks. Cellular mobile broadband is designed to connect anywhere within your carrier’s broadband coverage area; this means anywhere you can make a cell phone call you will have mobile broadband access. Dell’s built-in Qualcomm® Gobi™ 4G LTE mobile broadband card enables you to connect anytime anywhere at maximum download speeds of up to 100 Mbps*.

Dell’s built-in Qualcomm® Gobi™ 4G LTE mobile broadband cards 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. Dell’s built-in Qualcomm’s® Gobi™ 4G LTE technology is unlocked and backwards compatible to legacy 3G networks, including HSPA+ and EVDO, providing the broadest coverage worldwide and the flexibility to pick/choose your carrier of choice based on price/coverage in your region.

You can access this service by choosing an integrated mobile broadband card for your new Dell notebook and selecting the carrier of your choice:
  • AT&T
  • Sprint
  • Verizon Wireless

Dell will then pre-install the SIM card from the carrier of your choice. Upon receipt of your notebook, please follow the instructions provided with the unit to activate the mobile broadband service with your selected carrier. Alternatively, you can also acquire an activated SIM card separately from your carrier of choice or use an existing SIM card that has already been activated.
