Online comparison service MobileBroadbandSupermarket.co.uk has launched an online guide to help students choose the best mobile connectivity to suit their circumstances. The guide is available to anyone, but is also being made freely available to webmasters on student sites and forums and editors on student publications.
We published this guide to help students avoid some of the pitfalls involved with mobile broadband contracts, such as hidden charges and service performance issues, says
MobileBroadbandSupermarket.co.uk Managing Director, Andy Gott. With so many students now considering mobile broadband as an alternative to landline-based broadband, these considerations are becoming more important for students wanting to set up a broadband connection during their time at university.
Recent research has shown that Pay as you go mobile (PAYG) broadband deals are extremely popular among undergraduates living on a limited budget. Some reports have suggested that pre-paid mobile broadband sales have risen by over 70%. Whilst students are aware of the flexibility of some of these deals, some packages incur hidden charges and also have performance issues. With the launch of the student guide, MobileBroadbandSupermarket.co.uk says it is seeking to add clarity to the marketplace and help students to avoid the pitfalls.
The PDF student guide is free to use and redistribute – and at less than 160kb, should not cause any problems for webmasters who decide to host it on their sites. In addition, MobileBroadbandSupermarket.co.uk is happy to advise anybody requiring any technical assistance to upload the guide to their sites.
You can access the guide here.
