    Question Anyone use AT&T or Sprint Internet Cards?

    Hey,
    Yesterday, my cable was out, which means that so was my internet. That scares the s*@!t outta me! I need my internet to run my biz! Anyway, I need some honest opinions regarding the laptopconnect card or aircard that you get through your cellphone provider. Is it fast? Is it secure? It would become my only means of internet access. Help!

    definitely cable is much faster.

    aircard is only good for checking emails and browing, also maybe some video streaming.

    cable usually 10 or 20 times faster than broadband cards

    if you are planning on sharing that aircard connection then NO it isn't for your business.
    look for other options, eg. DSL or satellite

    We have one for our laptop at home but it's through Verizon. No problems with it at all, use it quite often while out in the living room. But like vonvhon said, it's not nearly as fast as cable.

    Thanks. I think that I'll just have to stick with my cable/DSL...

    It wouldn't be a bad backup source if your cable does go out to be able to put the word out that it is out and will hopefully be back up shortly, but for the price they charge for it it'd be something that should be used more often than just backup.
