    Default AT&T Air Card

    So, it advertises it's 49.95, and it is after the 100.00 rebate.

    Also, it advertises that you can surf anywhere at broadband speeds.


    It is better than dial up, I guess.

    I have a Sprint PCS card from my work, it gives me 800Kbps anywhere civilized enough to have a Walmart. Even in podunk it gives me decent dial-up speeds, and transitions between the two modes seamlessly. Pretty badass, really.

    Yeah, I've not tested it's Wi-Fi abilities yet. I live on a desolate mountain, and it was the only alternative from satellite.

    The fastest I've gotten here is 300k. Most of the time it's somewhere between 70-156kbps.

    Doesn't compare to my old cable connection.

    I'm not talking wifi...I mean just civilized. Basically, if whatever God forsaken burg I'm wandering through has a Walmart, it also has a cell tower somewhere nearby, or so it's seemed to me thus far.

    My laptop has built-in wireless that can pump 50+Mbps so I don't need it for that. (Sure my internet connection's only 1 Mbps, but I can toss files around on my home LAN like a mofo )

    I also have a Sprint PCS card as a backup for my home system and to use when I'm mobile. It gives me near broadband speeds ... but is not quite fast enough to handle me remoting in to my work PC and doing anything remotely complex. Overall, I'm happy with it though. It was free for signing up for their service ... which is $50 a month. I have yet to find a location in the DFW metroplex where I don't get at least 3 bars.

    Then gradually I began to intellectually reject some of the delusionally influenced lines of thinking which had been characteristic of my orientation. This began with the rejection of politically-oriented thinking as essentially a hopeless waste of intellectual effort.
