Well, after cursing the ancient lines in my house and their inability to carry a decent highspeed net connection, I went researching for a better way. And I FOUND it! Turns out, my wireless company, Verizon, has a Broadband wireless service that carries a signal just as fast as DSL over CDMA networks. This means that not only can I get highspeed net wirelessly, but I can get it anywhere I get a cellphone signal! So, for $25 for an activation fee, I got a free wireless modem and 5 gigs of data transfer a month for about $60. They just tack it onto my regular wireless bill, and for only 10 bucks more than I would be paying for home highspeed net, I can get it in the Cab AND at home. And, after breaking down the data usage, that means it would take the equivalent of 1,500 web page loads a DAY to equal 5 gigs of usage a month. On average, I only load about 400 a day. That leaves room for about 10 songs a day to download and about an hour of streaming video a day and I'm still under plan with what I use the net for. So I am FINALLY back to normalcy around here! And, I can get online more often now that I can take it with me on the road. That should help with the cab driving night job.
