Globalstar 9600 Satellite Modem
While many satellite modems are designed for use in a wide range of locations, this is pretty much the most portable model on the market. It's small enough to fit in a pocket or laptop case, making it ideal for use at just about any location. However, the design lacks some of the durability of other satellite modems, so this one isn't a great choice for use outdoors or in hazardous conditions. Download rates with this model only go up to 9.6 Mbps, so while this is a great choice for portability and ease of use, it's not the fastest modem on the market. This selection runs off a battery with up to four hours of life, making it a more portable option than models requiring a wall outlet for use. Not only is this a very portable modem, but it also functions as a Wireless-N router, making it ideal for use with laptops and other devices with Wi-Fi support.
