    Huh, you still need modems for mobile internet? Well, I suppose it makes sense, given that it's used on devices that are connected via phone to the carriers already. Otherwise, modems are a relic of the past.

      You do know that any radio communication require a modem to MOdulate and DEModulate the signal you want to send and receive from a digital device, has radio waves are analog signal. So without a modem you got no wifi for example.

        You might be confusing mobile internet (on a phone) with mobile broadband (standalone device/modem)

          Yes, but those are not the same modem devices that were used for dial-up. They don't dial anything.

            No I am not, a modem is software or hardware that take care of demodulating analog signal into digital one or modulating a digital one into analog, which mean it something every digital wireless device have, has electromagnetic radiation we use for wireless communication is analog. So it not just for phone communication like the one, I was replying to, was saying, has wifi also need one for example.

            So what ? What I was describing is still a modem, I was just trying to enlighten you on what a modem actually is, has you seemed to misunderstand why they still existed, has you seemed to think it was restricted to telephone communication in your original post, thus maybe should have been deprecated from what I understood.
