How does the BIG BOX providers i.e. (Cell Phone) Wireless Internet Access work?

Wireless Internet service consists of two parts: Plan and Equipment

1. A Internet service data plan from your cellular provider.

Wireless Internet service startup plans cost about $50 a month for 5 GB of data usage. Bandwidth overage charges are extremely expensive, so be sure to monitor your monthly broadband data usage closely.

2.A  Internet service data plan from your wireless ISP local provider i.e. (Directlink)

Wireless Internet service startup plans cost about $40 a month for 100 GB of data usage. Bandwidth overage charges are very low compared to CELL phone vendors, most likely your average usage for medium plans like these never exceed 60GB per month, If so then you upgrade to a larger plan and don’t worry about the overages because the price is built-in to the plan i.e. like a medium plan would have a 150GB cap for only 10.00 more per month.
