HP Broadband Wireless enables your computer to access the Internet from more places and over larger
areas than WLANs. Using HP Broadband Wireless requires a network service provider (called a mobile
network operator), which in most cases will be a mobile phone network operator. Coverage for HP
Broadband Wireless is similar to mobile phone voice coverage.
When used with mobile network operator service, HP Broadband Wireless gives you the freedom to
stay connected to the Internet, send e-mail, or connect to your corporate network whether you are on
the road or outside the range of Wi-Fi hotspots.
HP offers two types of broadband wireless modules:
The HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access) module provides access to networks based
on the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) telecommunications standard.
The EV-DO (Evolution Data Optimized) module provides access to networks based on the code
division multiple access (CDMA) telecommunications standard.
