Understanding Computers/wi fi


Hi Dan, Just bought a tablet for a young man that has no cable or land line connection at his home. What technology is out there other than Comcast, Direct TV and AT&T.

Thanks for your help

Hello Patrica,
Thanks for asking this question.

As you may know, nowadays many family or households do not have a land line connection, but only have a cell phone, or internet phone via cable.  In your case, there isn't any line connection at all.  I believe he has only a cell phone.  My question is that if he has laptop or PC at home, how does he normally access to internet?  He may have a smart phone to access to internet. Maybe.

If you want the tablet to access to internet when there is no line/cable  at home at all, then you can buy tablet with 4G, of which case the device would be more expensive and needs monthly data plan (either via AT&T or Verizon).  Data plan may cost somewhere around $15 - $20 per month with 4GB or so.
