I've a quick recommendation for anyone planning to add the Verizon Wireless Boardband card when purchasing a laptop.
Based on Verison literature I thought I'd be able to sign up for an approach of logging on for a single day or two or three at a time, at a price of $15, for those circumstances when a hotel or other work location didn't have adequate Internet (away from home and office).
They've dropped that plan, in favor of $60/month for VERY, VERY LIMITED SERVICE. Much more money for more.
Save your money, and go to something like TrueMobile. Or Sprint. Or whatever. Just not Verizon Mobile Broadband.
