Reviewing the GUI, I'm not sure I understand the intention of this
"You will need to provide the following information to set up a mobile
broadband connection to a cellular (3G) network"
It is ambiguous. To whom should I provide this information? My
teacher? My broadband device seller? My broadband service? No, I
need not provide any information at all, I'm supposed to configure the
The opening predicts an action; "You will need to" can be removed and
the sentence probably still has the same meanings.
By mentioning mobile, you exclude the possibility of use with a fixed
broadband device. The devices need not move around to work.
Also, by mentioning 3G, and showing a default 2G, there's an
implication here that a 4G network cannot be used. This isn't true; a
4G network should work fine with this GUI.
