The historic city of Pittsburgh, first settled in 1717, has managed to stay abreast of the times. Once known for its steel mills, the city has transformed into a technological center with more than 1,600 companies in the industry. Now, more than ever, Pittsburgh wireless internet is an important subject for residents to consider.
A simple way to get wireless internet in your home is to connect a wireless router to your home modem. The speed of your connection in this case will depend on the speed of the modem, and access will only be available within a few hundred feet of the router. Outside the home, there are many public Wi-Fi hotspots in Pittsburgh that provide wireless access. However, these connections are generally unsecured and may be vulnerable to hackers and identity thieves.
Another Pittsburgh wireless internet option is 4G broadband internet. 4G broadband is a new technology using the WiMAX standard. WiMAX covers almost the entire city of Pittsburgh, but you will only be able to connect with a plan from the appropriate provider, as well as a portable hotspot or USB modem device. Residents can also connect to the network with a stationary modem in their home or office.
The secure 4G mobile wireless internet network has speeds 4x faster than 3G. WiMAX is already available in many other parts of the country as well. You can see a full coverage map at your local 4G provider’s website.
