No, not FAP'd, thats an easy check now, just goto the webpage for the modem and it tells you.

I have 1 EVDO provider and that is Ntelos, they do not have good speeds and a 5 gig a month limit, not sure if they enforce the limit or not, Sprint does now have evdo around here, they must be using the Ntelos network.

Ntelos and Sprint both have the 5 gig cap, but sprint want to charge you 2 cent's a Mb overages with a 2 year contract.

AT&T has nothing here.

Verizon has nothing here.

US Cellular has nothing here.

A Town with 28,000 students and nothing of any use! what is up with that?

Yeah, we have no verizon towers, we have no alltell service period. I just went to Sprints website and it states the cap on signup, I was about to do it until I seen that.

5GB a month is worse then Hughesnet, having better speed will just get me there faster.

You know its a sad thing to say, but the USA broadband system is going from bad to worse, we should be one of the leading countries with broadband, yet India and other countries are leaving us behind.... so sad.

No wireless! I wish I had the financial backing to put up my own Motorola Canopy system...... Now that is some good speeds, WISP is the way to go and I cannot for the life of me understand why Verizon (our phone company) don't get into providing WISP, 1 single Motorola canopy antenna array can go upto 35 miles.
