    Default Wired or Wireless broadband?

    We have the wired broadband as well as wireless broadband. Both have the pros and cons, sometimes the convienece of the different types of broadbands which suits users.
    Wired broadband gives more stable speed and often less chances of disconnected, where as wireless broadband can have unstable speeds. But the main difference and advantage of wireless broadband is the mobility, with a wireless broadband you can connect to the Internet anywhere anytime, be it at your house or in another state.

    Any other opinions or advantages or disadvantages about wireless or wired broadband?

    I think wireless broadband is much better, its convinient and thats the main thing, no matter where I travel I know I can connect to my internet on my tablet. I dont find much of a different with speeds, but it may be because I dont do any major downloading or buffering.

    I think both have their advantages and disadvantages. I have a wired broadband connection and its stable all the time and I haven't faced any problems with it. My brother has a wireless connection which he used in his college and hes always complaining about the speed dropping and it getting disconnected, but the speeds are good when its stable and its wireless so he can always bring the same connection back home when he comes for holidays and then back to college.

    I prefer wired broadband as its more stable, with a wireless connection you tend to always movie it around and see speed fluctuating which I dont like.

    Like mentioned above I cant actually think if one would be better than the other, as both have their plus and minus points. No major difference apart from what I have already posted. Is there any difference in tariffs?

    I have both connections at home wired and wireless, and I have to say wired is much better, as there are less disconnections and the speed it more stable.

    Yeah ! I agree with u all that both the connections have their PLUS and MINUS.....For the peoples who didn't ROAM that much then WIRED CONNECTION is best for them and those peoples who ROAM alot then WIRELESS CONNECTION is best for them.

    For me personally a wireless connection is best, because I always need my laptop with me and need work done so I use a wireless connection, work gets done without any problems. The connection can be unable at times, but that doesn't really affect me because of the kind of work I do.

    Hi!The instability of wireless broadband is the main problem in India!especially when it is mobile broadband the proximity of the tower is a factor with CDMA BB as I have seen.GSM BB is somewhat better.It is annoying especially when some serious downloading is involved.Further there is the security problem.It is advisable NOT TO DO INTERNET BANKING while on the move.Security can be compromised.

    Yes exactly that. Latency is pretty bad with wireless connections and there is fluctuation from time to time. If it is possible to get a wired connection then nothing better then that.

    If your someone who stays at home and doesn't travel much and who doesn't need the internet then obviously for them a wired connection is best, but for someone who travels alot then a wireless connection is more suitable. Connectivity wise, well it depends on the connection, some wireless connections are quite stable taking into account which service provider it is, and some wired connections can be awful. So in some ways both are good and bad, which every works out best or which ever service provider gives the best service.

    Currently using Reliance Netconnect+ as my primary connection.

    Before I was having BSNL ADSL as primary connection, and kept the datacard in spare for those days when I *need* to be online but BSNL was offline (mostly Skype meetings, etc).

    I like Reliance Netconnect (wireless), because:
    1) It can be used almost everywhere. If I go to Bangalore for a quick trip, or visit relatives in the village, I can always be online with it. Obviously not possible with ADSL
    2) Prepaid nature is good, I can just charge it when I need it, and save money when I don't need it. ADSL usually you need postpaid.
    3) Compared to BSNL ADSL, it's always running (So far, the Reliance Netconnect service has only been down one (1!) morning for 2-3 hours here in my area).
    4) Customer-support/maintenance is not needed (problems are rarely local, unlike the wire).

    I like BSNL (wired), because:
    1) The plan is unlimited (or, to be fair to the wireless offers: The unlimited plan doesn't cut to useless 128kbps at some point).
    2) Speeds are fairly consistent, and congestion control seems much better (on the wireless, if the line becomes congested, it's like everything is suddenly VERY slow)


    I'm thinking about Wi5 (Tikona in other areas) -- how will you classify it? The pro/cons are a bit reshuffled there, but almost like wired.

    Both are good, it depends all on the service provider and the coverage you are getting. But when it comes to a stable connection they say a wired connection is better.

    i Think wired connection is for those user who uses large volume of data.
    wired is cheaper than wireless. wireless is portable where ever , when ever you want .

    Thats true a wired connection is cheaper than a wireless connection, an exception would be BSNL and MTNL 3G connections which provide quite reasonable priced tariffs.

    I have encountered a lot of problems with a wired connection and a wireless connection has worked much better for me, there are very few problems that occur witha wireless connection, so a wireless connection according to me is better.

    There is nothing better then a wired connection as long as it works You get a lot better latency and that obviously results into faster loading pages and if you add up the mili seconds that a wireless connection takes extra for each page load then you be surprised to see that over a period of time how many hours you spent just waiting for pages to load just coz you have a wireless connection. You would spend less time waiting on a wireline connection.

    You will find wired connection more stable then wireless ones. Wireless signals fluctuate a lot and as mentioned in the above post your page loads will be faster on a wired connection as opposed to wireless connections.

    Well! This is the reason of a unending fight that has been going in my house for sometime now!
    My dad & mum use wireless internet for their official corporate purposes. My younger brother uses a wired broadband.
    I use both, as per the need.
    My dad says we should stop using wired broadband & my brother says you all have wireless access!
    What to do? Welcome to Indian family
