Mobile Broadband (or Wireless Wide Area
A Mobile Broadband network, also known as a Wireless Wide Area Network
(WWAN), is a high-speed digital cellular network that provides Internet
access over a much wider geographical area than a WLAN, which typically
covers only from 100 to 1000 feet. Your computer can maintain Mobile
Broadband network access as long as the computer is within a cellular-data
coverage zone. Contact your service provider for coverage of a high-speed
digital cellular network.
Even if you are able to make a call from your cellular phone in a specific
geographical location, that location may not necessarily be within a cellular-data
coverage zone.
