Aircard is NOT designed to be a substitute for a 'wired' connection.
It's nice to have connectivity everywhere, but it has limitations.
Larry will be glad to beat that drum....
Personally, I'd have to say DSL.... then I have both FIOS and the card and
would be very hard pressed to give up one or the other.
Hint: a possible compromise is a Kyocera KR-1..
(if you are interested, I have a surplus one I'd sell cheap)

Anyone using Verizon air card service extensively or exclusively for
I'm trying to decide if I should go with Verizon DSL for about $45
monthly with download speeds up to 3mbps. Verizon is offering monthly
service for $60 (but I'd get about 20% discount through my job), but
download speeds would be from 600 kbps to 1.4 mbps.
I'm looking at using one of these services exclusively as I can't
afford both. The pro of the air card is that I can use it anywhere, at
home, at the airport, at hotels when I travel for my job, etc. I'm
just a little worried about the download speed. I'm on a laptop right
now and the download speed varies from 400-1.3 mbps and it's kinda
annoying. The pro for DSL is that both of my laptops can go online at
the same (I plan to use WiFi) and that it would be faster.
I don't mind 400-800K speed while I'm at the airport, but would find
it annoying if I'm trying catch up on a Lost episode from abc.com
while I'm at home.
I'm also considering ATT's air card service (I have cell phone service
with both Verizon and ATT).
TIA for sharing and advice.
