I have sprint and I get about 400K using my BB as a tethered modem in my area. If you have Verizon U can call them and activate it for use as a tethered modem for $15 extra month. It is free with Sprint. If you have Sprint and get the no roaming plan you will have good service, since you will benefit from Verizon's coverage as well. I cann't wait to try it as a tethered mdem in EVDO service. That should scream.
