    Millenicom wireless internet

    Just got my Millenicom wireless internet adapter today and while I don't have my Mac Mini ready to install yet (waiting for my screen fabrication) I decided to try this thing out with my iBook and it's great! Highly recommended for good high-speed internet anywhere you go - unlimited data for $49/month...

    They don't offer a coverage map, but claim they are the largest wireless internet provider in the US. You can email them from their site and they check your area for coverage for you and email you back with the results...

    Memphis, TN.

    if you notice, it shows up on the speed test as Sprint PCS as the ISP, but it's $10/month cheaper than Sprint for unlimited access and no contract - you can drop the service any time you wish.

    Cool. Thanks for the info. I will ask them about download limits per month...

    No limits - it's unlimited bandwidth...

    I've been looking into getting into Millenicom too. Have you gotten the GPS working yet? The USB adapter Millenicom doubles as a GPS receiver. I wonder if it's compatible with route buddy.

    PS: Millenicom is indeed a reseller of Sprint EVDO data. So Sprint's coverage maps should give a pretty good indication of what areas are covered.

    I haven't tried it with RouteBuddy as I bought a US GlobalSat receiver just for RB. Once I finish the installation I'll try it out and if the Millenicom works as a GPS in RB, I'll probably sell the USGS receiver.

    Thumbs up

    Just to jump on the bandwagon...I use Millenicom for my home net access since I can't get DSL or cable and after having it for several months and I love it. FWIW, I'm in central Ohio.
