no, not the home crap... perhaps mobile internet is the better term. with my new job and being on call this week, 99% of things that go wrong i can fix in 2 min.... but it sucks having to stay home just to be near a computer all week. so, I'm looking into getting a pcmcia card for mobile internet. Something like this: Connection Card PC-5740 they have 3 service plans: $39.99 Flexible Data Plan (40 megabytes (MB) of usage; $.001/kb overage; after $99.99 usage is free/unlimited.) $59.99 Unlimited Data with a separate voice plan $79.99 Unlimited Data (no voice plan required) I have nextel, so technically i have a voice plan already..... 60 bucks a month for unlimited internet access anywhere that I have cell service (which is just about everywhere). my work pays for my cell phone (up to 75 a month) and my internet fees, so i'm loosing 2 bills. picking up one bill at 60 bucks a month will still be cheaper than i was before i stared working there. Has anyone used this before? they claim 400-700 kbs and a peak spike of 2mbs.... so thats like DSL speed. plenty fast to check an email and restart a service. I imagine i'll be able to vpn in over this, no? I'm running a cisco client now-- i threw out that pos linksys vpn router-- so i don't need hardware to get into the vpn.
