    Hello!

    i am moving in about a month or so and was thinking about, instead of getting internet, just paying to tether via vzw.

    what type of speeds do you get?
    if is actually feasible to use this as a main point of access?


    if the speeds are good and the price is wrong for TWC i would like to do this.

    I use a usb modem and continue to get caught on overages(5gb limit). Verizon had a 190 dollar surprise for me this billing cycle. Is there a limit when tethered to a bb?

    Tethering is not intended as a main or sole access point - at least not until LTE arrives.

    There is a cap on the data transfer.

    LTE will start rollong out over the next year or so. When stationary/high-end data accounts start being offered, only VZW knows that. And, when LTE BlackBerrys start to appear, only RIM knows.

    The cool thing is we'll have LTE, which probably won't be branded as 4G or 3G or eegee or BeeGee, and the AT&T types will be screaming, YEAH, BUT IT ISN'T REAL 3G! And we'll continue to know they are mushrooms.

    When I lived in Lubbock for a couple years back in the late 70s/early 80s, we used to ask, WHY DOES THE WIND ALWAYS BLOW IN OKLAHOMA? BECAUSE TEXAS SUCKS!

    At least Lubbock did back then.

    For the time being, hang with Time Warner, knowing that a) LTE is coming and b) it isn't Cox.

    Yes, 5Gb when tethering. Unlimited when not tethering.

    It could have been worse we capped the amount you were charger because you were nice. You can only go. 190. Over on your first overage.

    Its a good thing you corrected yourself. You'd better not be moving to AZ as a Charger fan.

    I believe that is a valid reason to shoot someone around here.
