Verizon Cell Phone Internet Connections

After reading your cellphone Internet article, I decided to give my phone a try, for which I purchased Verizon's Mobile Office kit, some time ago. At the time (it must be at least 1-1/2 years ago) the Internet access was horrible. Many dropped connections, and very, very slow.

- Making internet connections with cell phone. I then verified with Verizon that there is no additional costs for using the "Express Network" which claims speeds up to 144k. I usually average between 20-40k, which really blows away my normal dial-up connection at home, since we still do not have any broadband options in my area. During normal "peak" usage, the time spent using the data is billed against my normal minutes. I have unlimitted night and weekend usage, so I could be connected to the network all weekend without additional charges. That's when I plan on downloading O/S patch upgrades. -
