What is a portable modem and how does it work?


Look for your modem at home or at work. Now imagine it much smaller, with no cords attached to it. A portable modem has a SIM card slot and gains internet access through mobile data plan or a broadband plan. These portable modems provide private connections with the option to make it accessible to others if you wish to do so.

And one of the best parts is, they are super affordable.



Advantages of portable modems

Portable modems offer a wealth of benefits to the user. Keep reading to learn about some of the advantages of a portable modem here.



The number one benefit of having a portable modem is that it is very convenient. And we mean convenient in a few different ways. First, it is compact and lightweight, making it easy to slip in your bag or even your pocket. Secondly, it can work for you anywhere, you don’t need to worry about trying to find a power source to plug it into, you’ve got readily accessible internet access everywhere! And thirdly, they are very easy to set up and configure too.


Secure connections


A portable modem has a firewall that protects users from unwanted attacks from the internet. This level of security is not possible when you try to access public wi-fi and your private information is vulnerable to unauthorized access. You don’t need to worry about the possibility of compromising any personal data with a portable modem!


Fast connection


One key feature of a portable modem on a data plan is its fast internet connection. There are plans that provide 3G, 4G, and 5G network connections. Do keep in mind that the internet speed is dependent on which network you are connected to and if your modem has dual band Wi-Fi.




We cannot emphasise enough how important portability is and how much of a key feature it is when it comes to these portable modems. The fact that a fast internet connection is literally available in the palm of your hand is enough reason for you to get one of your own. Let’s not also forget that it doesn’t need cords to stay connected to the internet (something that many people find to be a gem when it comes to portable devices). No more tangled cords for this one!


Ability to create multiple subnets.


Portable modems have the ability to have as many as 10 devices connected to the internet. From laptops, cellphones, game consoles, tablets, and even computers, there’s nothing a portable modem can’t handle!



Battery life is admirable


Portable modems can run for as long as a week (depending on the user), making it a very important device for those who are always on the go. Its battery life is much better than your standard laptop or tablet so reliability-wise, a portable modem should be on your must-have list if you prefer to have internet access no matter where you are in the world.
