Internet connectivity either via mobile network or through Wi-Fi is a common practice and one which is rather crucial considering the heightened usage of internet in the present times. Surviving without internet appears to something unimaginable especially if you are addicted to your smartphone. Technology is prevalent in every aspect of our lives. Even the developing countries have massively integrated technology and the usage of internet in their day to day functions. Technology and the internet have sped up the pace of globalization and enhanced communication greatly.
The omnipresent aura of Wi-Fi
The augmented levels of communication thanks to the internet have reaped their benefits in all sectors whether it is in business, in healthcare and even in education. Internet access is not possible without either Wi-Fi facility or mobile data network on smartphones so either of the two is obligatory to be available for continued internet access.
