Mobile Data has come a long way in the past 20 years. SIM are cards being used in many more devices than just mobile phones or tablets, it is now widely used in vehicles, plug and play routers, MiFi hot spots, digital signage, smart meters and industrial IOT applications too.
Many businesses and domestic users are turning to 4G, especially in areas not yet blessed with fibre. With plug and play aesthetically pleasing routers available, they do not look out of place in any home or workspace.
If you have dead zones we can also provide meshed access points to help you get signals to the hard to reach areas of your property.
4G can also provide resilience to fixed line communications too. HM Network offer a range of Mobile Data services from traditional mobile contracts with voice and sms allowances too, as well as data only services for a variety of applications.
Why choose a Mobile Data Connection?
ADSL and fibre broadband can be cost effective but might not always be the best suited option. In situations where the requirement is temporary or for an unknown duration, a 4G based solution might actually be better suited portakabins, garden rooms, temporary offices could all benefit from a plug and play 4G WiFI solution..
Our contracts can be flexible and provide you the connectivity you need just for the time you need it. Mobile Data can mean cost effective connectivity for emergency access, remote workers, temporary connections, over the air resilience to broadband and leased lines, connectivity for retail, pop up events and in recent times remote working and testing stations for CoVID.
