How to get Internet without a phone line

9 posts in this topic

I would like to get an internet connection without having a phone line. Is there a way to get it? Would I have to buy a mobile phone contract that would bind me for a two year period? Are there shorter contracts? Would it be a fast enough connection?

Yes it is possible. My fiance uses the vodafone easy box. He has mobile internet and can take his computer anywhere in Germany and have internet access. But it is a mobile contract, like a cell phone.

Who knows. Maybe they will come up with a prepaid version for the 3G connections, too. They may realize that they do not reap as much as they hoped to, and will go for shorter contracts, too.

 

Dream on.

I use Vodafone WebSessions, it's without contract.

(Only works if you have a computer that has a PCMCIA slot.)

 

Edit: And, yes, it's fast. Vodafone promises that you will have about DSL speed in any larger city in Germany and at least 64K/s in rural areas. The only thing that annoys me is that they compress web pages so they are smaller in size which is especially noticeable with pictures (read the details here)

T-Mobile's 3G prepaid offering is called xtra web'n'walk. If you need don't have PCMCIA, you can by a T-Mobile USB stick for €99.95.

More info here:

T-Mobile Xtra web'n'walk

 

The other possibility is to connect to a Hotspot (assuming you can get coverage) just using Wifi. Eg. A 30 day Hotspot pass costs €29.00 if you are not a T-Mobile customer.

T-Mobile Hotspot (but only in German)

 

Of course, Vodafone and probably O2 will have similar packages.
