    Verizon's Global Mobile Broadband Card

    http://www.engadget.com/2009/06/18/v...usb1000-stick/

    Very nifty. The plans are a bit pricey, though.

    You're welcome! It is a nice card, yeah, from what I can tell.

    Looks interesting, I think I would rather stick to Airport wifi while traveling though, maybe even the Verizon NetBook. http://www.verizonwireless.com/b2c/h...k/overview.jsp

    Ya, while I hope eventually we will all have wireless broadband, two things are holding it back right now. First, like previously mentioned, the cost is exorbitant for the average person, especially if they already have a wired connection. Also, the permanent caps of 5GB are way too low for anyone doing more than just surfing the web and checking email. I understand that most carriers can't handle any greater load on their wireless networks, but come on.

    I don't know what is the difference between that one & the one I have. I pay $50/m for 5GB/m

    This one mostly adds international capabilities (useful when traveling).

    Yep, I have used mine (Sierra Wireless domestic card) in several U.S. states, as well. Always works fine there.

    Its cool that they offer an international card now but the plans do not offer a lot of bandwidth 100mb to 200mb from that article. I currently have a Verizon card it was working great in the past. Lately not so much getting disconnected often and I am near a major city Chicago so not sure whats up with that.

    This happens to me too at school often probably interfering with the school's wireless network. Only reason I don't use the school's network because I don't want my packets to be potentially be sniffed by an administrator.

    Verizon used to have "unlimited" advertised on their plans now its 5GB or less

    Apparently they enforce this limit, too.
