Now Cingular, Verizon and Sprint (and more probably) offer high-speed wireless Internet access, without WiFi. I wrote about Cingular’s offering last week but Information Week has additional coverage. Mobile high-speed ‘net access is something you should really keep in mind. WiFi is NOT everwhere.
Information Week writes But Wi-Fi isn’t the only answer. Cell-phone companies are working to make fast Net access available from anywhere within their coverage areas using laptop-connection cards that support third-generation cellular networks. Cingular last week revealed an upgrade to its 3G network to one based on High Speed Downlink Packet Access, a new mobile-telephony protocol that’s supposed to give customers download speeds of 400 to 700 Kbps, double what it now offers and similar to DSL. Customers must buy a $100 laptop modem card and an unlimted $80 data plan.
