With 18% of the UK’s population using smart phones alone and that number growing everyday, the implementation of portable Internet access has never been a more pressing issue for the average family. What was once the family computer tethered to the web is now a growing collection of iPads, laptops, and smart phones competing for service on a wireless router.
While Wireless Routers have been around for years, their importance is becoming more and more apparent with each advent of new portable Internet accessing technology. What was once the convenience of being able to move around your living room with your laptop is now the necessity of being able to look up a toolkit manual in your driveway.
Today’s advanced wireless router manufacturers have not only anticipated this rapidly growing demand for home-based wireless access, but have foreseen the need to cater to the furthering demand for wireless access in remote places by the same families who use it at home. For instance you might find your family on a long train ride with five separate portable devices. Utilizing the rail service’s pay-as-you-go Wi-Fi is impractically expensive, and is typically the only choice for everyone to get to use their devices consistently unless you bring along a portable wireless router.
This new method of delivering wireless Internet virtually anywhere you can take your router and modem works in the same way as your wireless connection hooked up at home except that like your smart phone service it’s retrieved via satellite signal. That means anywhere where you can point to the sky; you can receive a wireless connection that can be networked to your whole family.
But the benefits of home network portability don’t stop with making everybody happy on those long trips. Once arrived a your destination, whether it’s a wayward aunt’s house or a hotel with a baiting Wi-Fi add-on, you and your family can continue to access the information superhighway as much as you need.
With the Internet getting bigger and the devices to access it getting smaller and more diverse, an investment needs to be made in universal and transportable Internet access. We either don’t realize or don’t like to admit how much we rely on this access to information, but just take a random minute one night and walk around your house, and surely one if not more members of your family will be at that moment accessing information online with a portable device. Whether a good thing or not, the demand for consistent reliable Internet access is there, with ever increasingly savvy ways supply it.
