|We are planning to take our business mobile (cross country). What are the best sources for going wireless?|

|I have used my laptop connected to my|
cellphone for years with problem. A little slow but who is in a hurry? I use it for internet, e-mail and banking.
Aol works everywhere, wmconnect.com is
cheaper at $10 a month. Don't use AT&T
because they don't like you roaming but
Verizon worked well for me...Doug

|EVDO wireless is the new deal. You can get sppeds from 14.4k to 2000k plus and I can get some type of connection where ever I get cell phone access. the cost through verizon is $60 a month with a 2 year contract and the aircard can be had for just about free with the right dealer.|

I'm also thinking about taking my business out on the road. I've been researching and found that many higher end RV parks have 802.11b wireless access, which will work with any computer that has a wifi card installed. Can't speak to the speed/quality of connection, which can get brought down by buildings and trees and if there are many users.
I've also been looking at satellite internet for those times away from the parks, and found it to be pricey. The service is $50-100/mo and the dishes start at $2500-3000, more for a fancy motorized, self-locating one. The cheapest I've found is http://www.mobileinternet.bz/, which are manually directed dishes and $50/mo service with DirectWay. These don't require a technician to install.
