:?: And you havent seen any slowdown or shut-off's as described above? I say your lucky 8-)
Everything has been working great, still getting fairly good speeds, I did once have problems to where the connection dropped but that only happened to me once and not had any problems since then.

Vodafone is in the US. It owns half of verizon wireless......

the 5 gigs from verizon wireless is just a limit. you can go over, just 25 cents a meg after that. haha. i'd imagine though that most people have a main pc at the house and will download large content that way and then transfer it to the mini.

I have the Verizon 727 air card and just love it. I run it from a CTR500 cradlepoint router at home so all my computers are wireless connected. I have never gone over 3gigs much less 5 and I download a lot of games and etc. I think most of the ones that go over the 5gig limit are downloading movies and running businesses. As far as which carrier is the best, this is determined as to what area you are in. I had an AT&T cell phone and could never use it inside my home. Verizon has the best coverage in my area and I get great speeds and have had no problems at all. I live in the boonies so my only other option was dialup which I used to have. I am so happy I switched. Just my 2 cents.
