Many modems allow you to connect to the internet in Europe or USA but only quadband modems allow you to connect in both. This is because the frequencies used for such connections are different in the USA and Europe.

In the USA 3G operates in the 850-1900 MHz frequency band whereas most European contries operate in the 2100 MHz frequency. If you buy the wrong modem then you may not be able to connect in all countries that you travel to.

You need to recognise this when you buy some of the latest laptops as well as some of then still do not have inbuilt quadband modems. If you take such a laptop to a country other than the frequency on which the inbuilt modem operates

Maximum download speeds of up to 7.2Mbps and uploads at up to 5.76Mbps allow for a speedy data connection.
