Techopedia explains Wireless Internet

Wireless Internet is typically provided by wireless Internet service providers (WISP) that broadcast wireless Internet signals in a specific geographical location. Typically, wireless Internet is delivered through radio waves or satellite signals.

Being an environment-dependent communication medium, wireless Internet is generally slower than wired Internet connections. Generally, connection to wireless Internet requires a wireless Internet modem, wireless access card or Internet dongle by the end user.

WiMax and EV-Do are common examples of wireless Internet. Wireless Internet may also include accessing the Internet via Wi-Fi connection within a home, office or local network.
