Prepaid WiFi As A Broadband Option!
we talk about prepaid WiFi, let's go through what exactly is
it! WiFi is a wireless technology that is found in virtually
every modern computer, usually used to connect wirelessly
Internet. It's also now commonplace to find it in a
of other electronic devices
printers, gaming consoles, smartphones, televisions, media players,
external harddrives, and
sometimes even kitchen appliances. These WiFi-enabled devices
often referred to as "connected devices," meaning that they can be
connected to other standalone devices, or to the Internet.
a WiFi enabled printer, it allows you to print wirelessly from
anywhere in the general vicinity (i.e. in your home or office).
Indoors, you'll usually be
to connect to it within 32m or 120 feet (this is the general standard).
My printer has this
feature, and I'm able to print when I'm downstairs in the family room
to the printer upstairs in the office in the opposite corner of the
house. I find this
to be tremendously
convenient, and it reduces the number of cords and wires as well!
With a WiFi media player, you can download movies and stream
directly to your TV without the need for wires or memory cards.
It really is an amazing technology that opens up worlds of
important aspect to keep in mind is that WiFi in and of itself is not
the Internet. It's basically a wireless protocol, which is a
fancy term for an industry accepted (and regulated)
standard. It allows you to connect, or network, two
or more devices together.
if you have an Internet connection with
your cable or home phone provider, you can buy a wireless router that
uses the WiFi standard, and if your computer
has a WiFi network card, you'll be able to connect your computer to
the router and thereby connect to the Internet! In
of the wireless printer example, the printer is not connected to the
Internet, so the wireless connection you're making is simply to allow
your computer to communicate with your printer to avoid the need to use
a cable. Of course, most modern connected printers are
connected to the Internet to download calendars, kids
activities/coloring pages, documents from your cloud folders, etc.
Wi-Fi Stand For?
often read that it stands for "Wireless Fidelity," however, that's
actually not the case. It's actually said to be a play on
to mirror the commonly used term "Hi-Fi," and is simply a more consumer
friendly term referring to the wireless networking IEEE 802.11
technology. There are a number of version of this standard
you may have heard of, including
802.11a, 802.11b, 802.11g,
and 802.11n, etc. Generally speaking, these represent
and security standards. Newer versions are virtually always
compatible, which means that if you buy an 802.11.g router, it will
still work with your older computer than may only have the 802.11b
standard. The same logic applies to prepaid WiFi, as prepaid
simply a payment option. In other words, anything you learn
WiFi can be applied to the concept of no contract, prepaid WiFi plans.
