    I've used my laptop-to-Vision phone hook-up occasionally for access to the
    internet. I've been very happy with the connection speeds and reliability
    and I'm thinking of getting a wireless data plan. Sprint offers 300MB /
    month for $80. How does this compare with wireless offerings from the other
    telcos?

    I prob. will be travelling a fair bit in the coming months, including trips
    to boonies where the hotels don't have free broadband (gasp!). Also, having
    gotten used to my wi-fi connection at home, it would be nice to browse the
    web while sitting by the pool or whatever. In a few years, wi-fi will
    probably be all over the place, but for now I think cellular data is still
    my best bet.

    Thanks.

    Do you already have a Sprint PCS Connection Card? The 300 MB for
    $80 is only for one of those cards. Your phone and plan would be
    separate. Of course Vision on the phone and Vision on the Connection
    Card would only work where Sprint PCS has it's own coverage, no roaming.

    To follow up on Jerome's post, one thing more to mention to Bill T. If you
    can qualify as a business account with SPCS, you can get unlimited wireless
    for $80 with SPCS.

    Hey, even in the boonies, if you can find a Hampton Inn or Hilton
    Garden Inn, it has free high-speed.....

    Which would definitely be worth looking at, since 300M will not go far
    browsing these days.
