How to Configure Mobile Broadband’s PIN

Mobile Broadband PIN number is a very critical number and should be manipulated after acquiring sufficient knowledge about it. There are three basic operations which one can perform with their Mobile Broadband Personal Identification Number, namely:

  • Enabling the Mobile Broadband PIN.
  • Disabling the PIN.
  • And changing it to a new PIN.

Enabling Your Mobile Broadband PIN

To enable your Mobile Broadband PIN, go to the Connect to a network. You can access the Link by clicking the network icon in the notifications area.

Go to Properties by Right-clicking the Mobile Broadband Network.

Click the security tab and Enable the Mobile Broadband PIN, type the PIN and click OK.

If by mistake you enter wrong PINs several times, the connection is blocked and will be unblocked only when you type the PIN unblock key (PUK). PUK is obtained from your Mobile operator.

Sometimes your device is not shown in your security tab. But there is nothing to worry, just check everything again and see if your PIN is supported because at times it also happens that the PIN is not supported.

If your device does not show a security tab, it probably does not support PIN. If the enable PIN tab is missing, the PIN might be enabled previously.

Disabling Your Mobile Broadband PIN

Disabling the PIN will deter the security offered by it. It is recommended not to go for it unless necessary. But if it’s your final call to disable the PIN of your Mobile Broadband, then go to the Connect to a network. You can access the Link by clicking the network icon in the notifications area.

Go to Properties by Right-clicking the Mobile Broadband Network.

Click the security tab and Disable the Mobile Broadband PIN, type the PIN and click OK.

As mentioned earlier if you enter Wrong PINs for more than the allowed times, then the connection is blocked and then PUK will be required to gain access again. You have to contact your Mobile operator and verify yourself to get the PUK.

When you enter the incorrect PIN with your connection on then your connection will be closed and terminated till your account is unblocked. Check your security tab and see if your device is shown there because if it is not showing then perhaps your connection’s PIN might not be confirmed.

Changing Your Mobile Broadband PIN

It is also a good practice to keep changing your PIN regularly. As it is a very important password if it keeps changing regularly its secrecy can be ensured. So to change your Mobile Broadband PIN, go to the Connect to a network. You can access the Link by clicking the network icon in the notifications area.

Go to Properties by Right-clicking the Mobile Broadband Network.

Click the security tab and change the Mobile Broadband PIN, type the current PIN, the New PIN and retype the new PIN to confirm it, and click OK.

Please take care that you enter correct PIN otherwise you will have to go through the procedure mentioned earlier.

If your status says ‘connected’ when you enter the incorrect PIN then your connection will be closed and terminated. Then to activate it again you have to personally contact the operator and unblock the account.

It is advisable to store your Mobile Broadband PIN at a place of safety to avoid accidental termination of services.

IBM’s Study Reveals the Sustainability of Tiered Mobile Broadband Pricing

IBM laid its analysis of the telecommunications market over the next five years and came to a conclusion that as IP-based high-speed mobile data ideals like LTE and WIMAX diffuse more broadly around the world, data carriers would get done with top providers and will enter into formal partnerships with them. Since the carriers are destined to lose the incoming gross revenue that they used to once generate via minute-based cellular plans, they will have to make up for the revenue by eliminating their data plans. Having just data plans or modules, the carriers have very less scope for competition in the global wide network. This will be an accommodation owing to the fact that most users have been qualified to enjoy unlimited access to some top services without any rentals, i.e. for free.

Investigating the telecom industry’s broader flanks, IBM churned out four probable settings or scenarios identifying how the industry will germinate over the next five years. These scenarios circumscribe:

Declining customer investment leads to stagnation of revenue, thereby leading to further integration within the industry.

Market fragmentation that will be caused to move faster by municipal as well as government efforts to impart broadband to underserved as well as unserved locations.

A setting where top providers merge to compete aggressively against other top providers.

A setting where the barriers or blocks boil down “as regulation, technology and competition drive open access.”

IBM suggests the latter 2 scenarios to be appealing to the carriers as they are likely to make it appropriate for the carriers to retain their strong market shares as well as be successful in adapting to the various challenges of top providers. The latter 2 scenarios are most likely appropriate and lucky for the carriers owing to the fact that they are capable of germinating into success stories. According to IBM, the carriers that are likely to be successful in these scenarios are those that have the ability to produce or create inter as well as intra-industry alliances that can act as catalysts in helping telcos compete with other internet companies or companies that have more open network access infrastructure to support third-party applications.

IBM also stresses on the kind of technologies that will be considered most important over the nest five years. It pulls out fiber-to-the-x in case of fixed broadband and Long Term Evolution for mobile broadband.

According to a survey commissioned by IBM in 2009 of various telecom companies, it was revealed that over 70% of operators found FTTx to be critical to their success over the next five years, while 67% has the same notions about LTE. In sharp contrast, about 8 % of operators found WIMAX to be critical to their success over the next five years and 54% disagreed to the same.

Understanding Your Mobile Broadband Better

Mobile broadband also known as Wireless Wide Area Network refers to the portability of high speed Internet. A mobile broadband can be accessed remotely from any place where one can get a cellular service provider this helps you in being connected to Internet moving place to place. This technology is supported by 2G, 2.5G & 3G network providers.

There are various terminologies that are used in the mobile broadband technology:

  • A data card that is the device you the access to mobile broadband
  • A Subscriber Identity Module (SIM) card that contains the details and security of the subscriber.
  • A APN that contains letters and numbers combined in such a way that the type of network access can be identified.
  • A Auto Connect and Auto Select which automatically establishes a connection to the mobile broadband network and automatically selects the mobile operator when the home provider is out of service.

The basic need for a connection to the mobile broadband service are a data card like a PC card or a USB connected to your laptop, one must have the correct drivers in the system so that the card function normally, the final thing is a mobile subscription for the access of mobile broadband.

The user must select the best suitable plan from the various plans that the mobile broadband provider provides. One must select a plan wherein he/she can have high speed Internet and unlimited data usage available. This helps the user in getting a very smooth and easy experience of surfing the Internet. Moreover, there is should not be any kind of restrictions on the kind of program that is used for Internet connectivity.

The user must mostly opt of the unlimited data usage plan if you have one available but the user those who done have such facility must make some notable changes so that surfing the Internet becomes better and less costly for them. Here are some of the changes that a user can make according to his convenience in order to make his Internet experience more pleasant and affordable:

  • The user can change his mail id settings in such a way that only the header that contains the details of the sender and the subject of the mail. Only after verifying the importance of the subject of the mail a user can downloads the mail based on his convenience. This reduces the data that would be used because all the unwanted mails can be avoided.
  • The user can change his browser settings in such a way that no images any websites are automatically uploaded. This helps because uploading of image takes considerable amount of data.
  • The user should change his Windows update setting so that windows do not keep on updating itself automatically because this takes more data transfer to do so. The windows update settings can be changed in the following way:
    • Go to Windows update in the Update options.
    • Go to Change Settings.
    • Under Important updates, select Check for updates but let me choose whether to download and install them from the list, and then click OK.
