    Hey all -

    I've been getting annoyed at the AT&T data limits on both the iPhone and iPad lately. So I was hopping around and found something that I thought I would pass along. I do a lot of Netflix and Slingbox streaming and was encountering the upper limit in less than a week.

    Time Warner Cable seems to have gotten into the virtual cell provider business. They have a new service called Time Warner 4G. It uses Sprint's 4G network. If you're a Roadrunner customer, it's $50 month. You can only get it if you're already a TWC customer. If you just have their cable, it's $60.

    With Sprint's direct hotspot plan, it's $50 for unlimited 4G, with an additional $10 for 5gb of 3G. TWC however gives you unlimited both. Which is great for me because I only am in 4G territory 1/4 of the time. With the TWC plan you sign a 2-year contract and pay $100 for the hotspot device from Sierra Wireless. Then there's a $50 rebate.

    Just thought I'd let the masses know if this hidden gem :)

    Quite honestly, I'm too tired to work through the math of what you have posted. Maybe it is good, I dunno. But this:

    Wow. You consume some serious media.

    Lol. 90% of it is streaming TiVo recordings and comedy shows at work to listen to.

    Thanks for the note brother!

    I already bought Sprints 4G router and the speed is awesome!

    Wow, that's not a bad deal if you use a lot of data. I might look into it. Thanks

    I wish I had a job where I could watch TV shows at work and not get fired.
