The differences between wireless home broadband and mobile broadband

Wireless home broadband requires a fixed line broadband connection to your home which you can then access wirelessly through a wi-fi enable router. Whilst, wireless broadband may also describe mobile broadband, a broadband connection over the mobile towers, which involves a USB modem or a built-in modem and a SIM card (like in a tablet device).

Although both connections allow you to move around your home without wires, there are important differences between mobile broadband and home Wi-Fi. As mobile broadband connects over the mobile phone towers, customers can take their internet connection outside the home and use it anywhere there is a signal. In contrast, home Wi-Fi will only work up to a certain distance from the Wi-Fi modem generating the wireless network. 

Mobile broadband is best suited to users who want an internet connection on the move. A mobile broadband connection is usually restricted to one device at a time, so it's not ideal if multiple users want to share a connection. There are modems available that can use the mobile broadband signal to create a wireless network but multiple users will result in a slower download speed. Mobile broadband does not require a phone line, so it is ideal for people who prefer to use their mobile to make calls.

Home Wi-Fi broadband restricts the user to one area but usually the wireless network can cover an entire house and even reach the backyard. Home Wi-Fi is best suited to users who do not need to access the internet on the move but do want a fast, stable broadband connection with plenty of data at home. A phone line is required on ADSL and ADSL2+ plans but can be bundled with the same provider. Alternatively, users who prefer not to pay line rental can sign up to Naked DSL, which is an ADSL2+ broadband plan without a home phone service. Cable or NBN plans can also be accessed wirelessly from home with the applicable wi-fi router which can often be purchased from your chosen provider.
