Seasoned business travelers who rely on their laptop computer to stay connected have probably experienced the frustration of expensive hotel internet connections, unpredictable speeds and a dearth of WiFi hotspots outside of major metropolitan areas like New York. The solution? Travel with a USB stick-modem so you can be online from just about anywhere. USB modems (also called “dongles”) are usually effortless to install and use, and offer the convenience of a high speed internet connection just about anywhere your cell phone has reception. And with the flexibility of a replaceable USB device, travelers can easily swap their stick modem to connect to the most reliable high speed local networks from Mumbai to Manchester, Minneapolis to Masada.
