Netbooks are huge right now, and the fact that millions of people are now surfing to their heart's content wherever they go thanks to embedded wireless modems is not a fact that has passed the major broadband providers by. The fact of the matter is, a lot of people do a substantial portion of their computing away from the home. We rely on coffee houses, restaurants, and bars to provide us with the Wifi we need.

According to Light Reading Insider's, The Netbook Effect: Remaking Price Structures, netbooks have changed the way broadband companies look at their business.

"While the full impact of embedded PCs on broadband services is not likely to be felt over the next 12 to 18 months, network operators will have to respond with different service options as more of these devices are put into use." said Tim Kridel of Light Reading Insider.

What the broadband companies are going to start doing, in essence, is release service packages where customers pay a single price for both mobile and fixed Internet services. These plans will have to be competitively priced if the Broadband companies hope to be able to compete with the way things are currently done. Still, the convenience alone of having reliable mobile Internet wherever you go would go a long way to make up for the extra expense.
