Portland’s hallmarks are its environmental friendliness, its public transportation, its coffee and beer brewers, and a strong do-it-yourself culture that has produced many beacons of art, music, and literature. The city is known as “The City of Roses,” because of its ideal climate and many gardens for growing roses. With so much to explore in Portland, wireless internet is the last thing many people want to spend their days worrying about.
Portland has plenty of providers who offer wireless internet. Some of these are cable providers, and the only way to get wireless access is to connect the home modem to a wireless router. Another option is to connect to a mobile wireless broadband network. One of the fastest new Portland wireless internet networks is 4G WiMAX, which is 4x faster than a 3G network. Another benefit of mobile broadband networks like this one is that you can connect from almost anywhere in the city with a portable mobile hotspot or USB modem. Wi-Fi home routers, on the other hand, only have a range of a few hundred feet, and since they must be physically connected to a modem, cannot provide the same on-the-go access.
12.6% of commuters in Portland used public transit in 2008, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. If you are one of those commuters, or if you have always wanted to try it, mobile broadband wireless internet can help you stay connected while you’re on your way to Portland’s next big thing.
