What is an AirCard?

Mobile Broadband cards (or aircards), are small sleek devices that plug into your laptop. They allow you to access wireless broadband on cellular networks and come in 3 main forms:

(1) USB
(2) PC Card
(3) ExpressCard

USB cards plug into the USB slot of your laptop or PC. For this reason, they are usually the most compatible with wide ranges of PC’s and Mac’s.

PC Cards, though less popular now, have the ability to function as mobile broadband cards and WiFi Cards. As most laptops now have built-in wireless radios, the usefulness of this feature has greatly diminished.
