    gotcha gotcha, keep in mind though, americans usually get stuff a lot earlier than we do

    plus you guys can get EVDO, we have to pay RIDICULOUS amounts for it, so it isnt even worth it, this is the best thing thats come out so far for us

    its $50 a month, so i dont think a lot of people will be getting it, but for those who need mobile internet its the only viable solution

    and it only works in the major cities, so, if u have to leave the city, byebye internet

    yeah... i hear ya.. only speed we can get down here.. south ga.. is 128k if we are lucky.. with a 56k download and thats alltel and around 80 bucks a month when its all said and done....most towers are still 1x service around here.... and it drops anything over 15mph.... so its almost there.. when they upgrade the towers it will be great.
    the broadband wireless is starting out... just like when the cell companies started out... it will get there... takes time. but man its sweet.. .the speeds are great. and its a true IP based system. really both technologies into one design.. future is gonna be fast and mobile.... cant wait

    so the hand off between towers kinda like cell... drops sometimes etc. what speed mph does it still maintain a signal... and what throughput did ya get
    ya the hand off is crapy, and they will not help or support you if your moving around. They will only support ppl that are in a stand still location, within an open area (ie. modem next to window or open door etc..). I personally have not tried it in a car... As for the throughput the theoretical max that they advertise is 1.5 Mbps download and 256 Kbps upload... although my friend says some customers have reported speeds exceeding 3mbps in certain areas of Toronto.

    well, to be honest, who really needs the internet when they're moving so fast?

    personally, i'd only want it when im stopped somewhere anyway, so the tower hopping wouldnt be an issue, now if u wanted to VOIP while driving that might be different, or internet radio, but thats what cell phones and mp3's are for

    but, msn/webpages/ebay whoring, all things that should be done while stopped, lol, in my opinion anyway

    Recently (2 weeks ago) I found that Canadian Rogers Company started to offer Wireless High Speed Internet across Canada.

    http://www.shoprogers.com/business/i...4A2T6810WCFNH5

    This monday I ordered this package and today's morning I received it.

    It is regular size modem (like cable modem) with just two plugs - power (+13V, 1A) and RG-45. I installed it in my car today and tried to use with my Carputer. It is amazing - I drived thru whole city (Montreal, QC) and it did work. I tuned on some internet radio station with 128bps rate and listened for it for a couple of hours during driving. I found that sometimes the connection was dropped - usually in long tunnels or in some downtown areas. This was probably because I located my modem in the trunk and the modem's antenna did not get good reception.

    The real speed which I got was: downloading from Microsoft.com around 190-210 kb/sec, so it is aprox 1.6MBit.
    Rogers sad that it should work 1.5Mbit Down and 250kbit UP.

    It cost here 49$ CAD per month plus 99$ CAD modem.

    So congratulations to all Canadian carputer owners - this is the real way to get internet in your car.

    It works in all major cities of Canada. The frequency is 2.5GHz.

    If you need more info on modem brand and protocol used - ask me

    Sorry for my english
    Vladimir

    have you got this working in the car yet?? i am interested to here the results
