It depends. If you want "mobile FiOS" it just isn't going to happen at the moment.

Does anyone offer a nationwide wireless Internet plan with prices mere mortals can afford?
I have Comcast High Speed Internet for $55/month. If there are any limits on usage, my wife and I have not yet encountered them.
A 21" monitor and a real keyboard make my happiness complete.
My phone is a good phone. It's not as good as a PDA as my Palm M500, largely due to the poor text entry facilities. As a web browser, it sucks!
If I needed a web browser that I could put in my pocket and use anywhere I don't think any phone I've seen or heard of would be very satisfactory.
I was referring to Verizon's data services. They have an adapter for notebook computers and that's what I had originally planned to get, until I found out they charge $256 per gigabyte.
I have FiOS. Love it. Doesn't do any good while I'm on the road, so I need a wireless Internet provider that charges reasonable fees. Is that too much to ask for?
What amount of data do you intend to move in a month on your notebook? From looking at the usage of lots of aircard users and also having one it is typically 500-3,000 MB /month which is well within the allowance.
