Wireless Broadband cards/service

Thinking about ditching my wired internet service, and getting a Verizon or ATT/Cingular wireless broadband card for my laptop. Who all has this service and what are some pro's and con's? Typical bandwidth speed? Any info would help. Thanks

I have three.

Verizon : Average speed. 5gig limit
Sprint: Really good. Zero problems. In Vegas I got 350KB. No limit I know of.
Cingular: Down and up. Would change from 2g to 3g in certain areas. No limit I know of.

Who has your cellphone? You could tether with your cellphone and use that internet.

Yeah Sprint was good and I was running a 5 meg connection. If you plan to just surf the net and maybe watch some videos etc... You will be fine with a 1 meg- whatever connection. The only flaws these wireless connections have is when you play online gaming because itís really bad with lagg.
