I won't leave this completely wordless. This is my new Internet receiver; it is fixed wireless, bouncing off an antenna on the top of the mountain I live on, which bounces off another antenna atop a larger mountain (where I go snowboarding), which bounces to an antenna in another town that connects to fiber optic.
So far the experience is far superior to satellite in terms of that nasty latency issue. When I have to do things that involve communicating back and forth with a remote system, it was the worst.
I was happy to read people's comments about the MiFi - you will have to let me know how you like it. I don't have any cell service here, so the Verizon product isn't even an option. I just thought it looked really cool.
