People often ask what the difference between these two terms actually is. There is often confusion and ignorance about what the two are and how to actually turn them on, especially among older generations who have not dealt with this sort of thing much. It could be a new cell phone with which they are unfamiliar, or it could be a completely new technology. But what is certain is that people are a bit lost here. So let\’s take a look at some of the differences between mobile data and Wi-Fi.

A) Range and Location
With wireless fidelity, your location, or the location of your device, plays a big role. Each Wi-Fi works through a specific router, a small box that provides Internet. This box must, of course, be connected to electricity and must log on to its network. But each router has a limited range of communication: it might be 10 meters, or it might be 5 meters. It is also limited by terrain, weather, location, and the number of walls separating the router from the device. In any case, such mobile data can be caught anywhere where a cellular signal is available. There is no exact range for mobile data. So, for example, one cannot connect to a home network in another city, but can connect to the Internet by turning on mobile data.

B) Signal strength
With mobile data, you do not have to worry about signal strength (in most cases). So if you are in a city, the signal will be stronger than if you are in the woods, but you can still connect to the Internet in such places. With wireless, signal strength is more or less the sum of many different factors that ultimately determine strength. It can be the weather, the number of walls or obstacles between the device and the signal, or the number of users connected to a single network. Usually, the telecommunications provider will provide an exact price. In the case of routers, on the other hand, you pay only once a month (about 400 kronor) and nothing else. For mobile data, the carrier must activate this option, while wi-fi can be turned on at any time or turned off at any time.
