Mobile Broadband Rental: Affordable Connectivity

With the current economic crisis, many are penny pinching whenever possible, cutting back on unnecessary expenses and looking to save money anywhere they can. More than ever, a growing number of people are deciding to rent rather than buy on a wide range of products such as cars and laptops. While these are just a couple examples, renting services when they are needed and for as long as necessary has proven to be tremendously useful and cost-efficient in these dire times.

Mobile broadband is another great example. Technological advances and the invention of the ‘plug and play’ USB stick make it extremely easy and convenient for instant wireless broadband connectivity.

Although prices have been steadily declining, major network providers still charge a hefty monthly fee for a mobile broadband device with a tolerable amount of data usage. And don’t forget, the device will in most cases always come with a long-term contract.

At first this may not seem alarming, but when you add up monthly charges, accidental overages, and other fees over a 24-month contract for an average number of employees it can add up to some major spending.

As the credit crunch continues, many companies find they have to rethink many of their everyday expenditures, including entering lengthy contractually binding agreements. Although, many employees with flexible work schedules may find themselves traveling on the road, at a trade show, or on a business trip every so often requiring mobile broadband, 24-month’s worth of fees doesn’t seem practical to merit such a contract.

A company such as Cellhire, an independent communication rental firm, provides business customers with short-term mobile broadband service anywhere from a week up to several months. Intercontinental alternatives also exist for travelers outside of the US. Customers only rent when they need to and for as long as they like avoiding high-cost monthly charges and lengthy contracts.

Overall, mobile broadband rental undoubtedly stands for a resourceful and money-saving alternative to the long-term contract system, particularly while enduring these current financial times.
