    Upgraded to a Mifi 2200. Pretty cool little device. I used the 760 plugged into my macbook pro for internet access for customer demos, customer worksite access, ect.

    The Mifi hits the 3G cell network and puts out a small, 5 member wifi network. This will be perfect for my ipad. The speed is much faster than the 760 modem and much, much , much faster than AT&T 3G.

    I have a dead spot in my room where I watch KU basketball on TV, so I fired up the Mifi, set it on the table and then hit that wifi from my iphone and it hauled.

    Anyway, seems like a good solution for the ipad. No way can I wait for the 3G to come out and work pays for the verizon access, as long a s I don't abuse it, I have 5GB in a month to play with. Kinda impressed. Why was Verizon so shortsighted and not just kiss jobs ass. I would have, but I knew apple had a home run the second I say the iphone.

    The MiFi is 60 a month for 5gb that does not include all the tax and fees though. I have one and it's been great so far, I have never even reach the 5gb limit since having it since I'm usually in a wifi area. I use it for when I'm not and since I reserved the Ipad 64gb wifi model it will be great.

    Meh. I can't justify that +$60 monthly cellphone bill. Maybe if I worked on the road.

    I have been looking at this as well. Since i live here in KC, and yes GO KU! woot lol. What sort of speed have you been experiencing? I travel from Olathe to Liberty and Lee's Summit to Lawrence mostly, been researching a bit which to go with. I don't have any issues with the 3g on my iPhone but work is VZW phones and any data plan I get will have to be with them.

    Thanks for any additional info.
