    Do the USB plugins for broadband work? ($40 per month as advertised on TV)
    If they do, why aren't they already built into computers?
    Also, do they help wint landlines?

    Does your cellphone work?

    They are built into computers.

    Does your cellphone help with landlines?

    Internet in Indonesia was, in general, pretty rubbish but things have started to change.
    We managed a massive 3mbps but that was doubled in January.
    A new wireless broadband system has just come on line; it's called, Bolt, and it pretty good.
    So far, my best speed has been 23 mbps down and 5 up.

    Cell phone providers use either CDMA, GSM or LTE in their towers. A computer manufacturer would have to know what you want. Some customers don't want a contract with a wireless phone company.
    Another thing is that Verizon is dropping what they use in favor of pure LTE so you could be buying hardware that is going to become obsolete.

    A USB plugin is only as good as the wireless company it is on. If there is no reception in your area, what good is it? Speed is also only as good as the reception you have.

    Other USB plug ins use WiFi which would be good enough for me because we already have WiFi in our house.

    I'm unsure that's a good idea.
    The BOLT site is reasonably secure, but a third party site might well have issues.

    Terima kasih, tapi saya tidak suka itu, jadi saya paket bolt asli saja.
