    Cheapest but still some good speed. I bought a laptop and I need something real cheap for mobile service

    Have you ever actually used a cell for internet browsing? It's on par with dialup

    No I havent actually used it. PCS vision is somewhat faster than dialup :dunno: And the question was whats the cheapest. It might be good as long as your not expecting to download pr0n @ 300k

    Okay, I thought my original response was adequate, but I'm going to have to ask the question. What do you mean by mobile? Within a room? Within a house? Within a city block? Anywhere in North America? Anywhere in the world?

    Obviously the more flexibility, the more it costs. I'm currently typing on a laptop in front of my TV connected to a 50' cord (no I don't live with anyone ;)). It maximizes the speed, and minimizes the cost. So as stupid as my first suggestion was, it's not that stupid when you consider it's faster than any other option.

    I'd like to connect to anywhere within the United States. I've been traveling a lot lately, and sometimes I break for coffee or to bunk. I also have a cabin in main where I spend 2 weeks out of every summer. There's no phone there, no network, and basic cable only. I don't want to be tethered to any wire at all. :bigthumb:

    Then surf on thru your cell (assuming you have cell coverage in the areas you need it).
