Recently I bought a Sony Bravia 32″ LCD TV. It supports connectivity to Internet over the wi-fi and ethernet cable. I was happy seeing its specifucations and it was written ‘internet ready’.

I bought an iPad last September from Bangkok. It’s Wi-Fi model, and can connect to Internet through Wi-Fi hotspots only. My Office has Wi-Fi and I was using it from office most of the time. But returning from office, it goes offline which is painful, you know. Considering this situation, I tried to connect my home to Wi-Fi. I have a Wireless Router, and what I need is a connection to internet. Considered broadband, but due to its frequent failure and slow speed I abandoned. Then comes Qubee or BanglaLion. But currently I am using Zoom Ultra Modem from Citycell. It provides mobility. I can connect from anywhere in Bangladesh. Qubee and Banglalion has limited coverage yet. And to implement a WiFi I need indoor unit, that does not provide mobility.
