That is all fine and dandy, but if you are unlimited, you will get throttled if you go over 2 Gigs (I think that was the latest) and if you don't have unlimited you will eventually have to pay.

The service is also 30 a year so you are really still paying for it anyway even if it is at a cheaper price.

Bottom line is that someone is getting money rather than letting us use our data how we please.

I've paid up for it, seems good

Using this on a MacBook Air 2011 (Lion) gets me a little more then 1 Megabit per second download, a little less then half that on the upload. I won't use it to eliminate/replace my home direct line, but I think it could be useful occasionally on the road. Definitely worth the $15 per year introductory, as long as nothing (or nobody) squashes its service.

FWIW,
