Qualcomm says to expect more details on LTE laptop data plans in ‘coming months’


  • Graham Fluet

    Flex rate plans like what Telus has should work fine. Hopefully with cheaper scaling.

      or a 10$ share plan.

      But i think they where talking about plan including financing like a smartphone.

  • What’s the big deal? My three year old laptop has LTE connectivity with built in sim card slot. And if you don’t have that, get an internet stick.

      Or just tether with your phone? Bonus you can keep your phone charged with your laptop…
      And let’s not forget these connectivity plans won’t be <10$ a month.

    • John Lofwire

      nothing stop you from buying a sim card with a 10$ share data tablet plan and put it in the device..

      Tether is soo good for your phone battery as its will drain your battery like crazy making you charge the phone much more often.

      If you do like some ppl do and do it when its charging its even worst because of heat.

      I would not recommend to tether more than 1 or 2 hours a day if you plah to keep your phone with a good battery for 2 years.

      Your 3 years laptop wont have the battery life of this device and will be slower ( newer laptop will be faster but less battery life )

      Internet stick are super slow…

    Carriers already have data-only (tablets / usb sticks plans). What’s wrong with these? I mean, other than the price of course. And the caps. And the billing. Oh well never mind, everything is wrong with these plans, but why do I get the feeling it’s not going to change?

    humm a tablet plan will work lol.
