You can use EMT Internet with various types of devices. Make sure to select the right device based on your needs. In general, there are two types of devices – one for browsing internet pages and the other for establishing internet connection.
Many devices are multifunctional and can perform both tasks.
To connect your computer to internet, all you need is a modern 3G mobile phone or a small EMT 3.5G modem, which is connected to the computer.
Once the connection is established, surfing the web and reading email works the same way as with a regular broadband connection.
There are three ways to connect a computer to internet:
- The connection is established via a 3.5G mobile phone, which is connected to a computer.
- The connection is established via a 3.5G USB modem, which is connected to a USB port on a computer.
- Some laptops have a built-in 3.5G modem for connecting to mobile internet.

Devices for viewing websites
Computer (laptop or desktop) – for internet users there is no difference whether the internet connection has been established via EMT Internet or a broadband cable – the functionality is the same in both cases.
Regular mobile phone – this is mainly suitable for viewing EMT SurfPort and WAP pages. Because regular mobile phone display is relatively small, web pages are transformed to show only the most important information (textual information and main images).
Smartphone with a large display – suitable for surfing the web and reading emails - smartphones have internet browser which displays websites in almost the same way as a computer monitor.
