Google Chromebook and Telcel Internet Stick

Can't Post | Private Reply
I am looking at buying a HP chromebook - it has usb ports and built in wi-fi.
I would like to use it on the road with a Telcel internet stick but can find no information on the internet if this configuration will work. Anyone have experience - or thoughts on this?

Sure, it will work. Just plug it into an USB port. The only drawback that I see is you are constantly uploading to and downloading from the cloud. This might get expensive. I would try to use the wifi as much as possible.

Updated Info on Using Dongles to Access Mobile Networks with a Google Chromebook.

https://support.google.com/...mp;ref_topic=3406281

Some users have had success with other dongles but nothing is guaranteed to work. If the dongle requires a separate software install, it is unlikely to work. Its always best to try out a dongle before buying if possible.
