In fact latency times are so low that I can use remote desktop and other applications that require a fast response time. It's just as fast as its PC card equivalent and gives you the flexibility to use it on any PC.
The best part of the entire deal for me is the Mac compatibility. It works great on my Mac Book (even in Leopard) and was a breeze to install.
All in All very happy w/ this Card(UM150) and Service(Verizon)
Verizon's EVDO cell Internet access service with all the various cards we have is apparently MUCH faster than most of the other cell phone networks (except Sprint which is also EVDO and as fast). I have been using Verizon's PC5740 card for years and it was slower but still comparable to my 3 Mbps DSL ISP access at home.
We also have several other cards by other providers and their internet access is so slow it's dysfunctional. To name a few, T-Mobile - my GC89 usually connecting at horribly slow 100 Kbps; my fellow IT Director stating that his older T-Mobile card is as slow, if not worse; Other users at our organization confirmed that using AT&T card was slow as well, so if you need speedy mobile Internet access, go EVDO (Verizon or Sprint) and avoid GPRS/EDGE (T-Mobile & AT&T). I had a bad experience with their customer service in the past and bought a T-Mobile card when we needed another one, but the horribly slow speed of other cell ISP providers made me change my mind. I'm buying Verizon again because their cell PC cards' internet access seems to be an order of magnitude faster than most of other providers.
Blazing speed. Go for it.
PLEASE NOTE PROBLEM WAS CORRECTED BY OS UPDATE - WORKS FANTASTICALLY NOW!!
Speeds with Rev A. are noticeably faster than the older Verizon Broadband card. I'm in the South Florida region and have not found a spot where Rev. A is not available. The monthly fee is definitely worth the freedom of having fast internet connection virtually anywhere.
This is an external card that connects via the USB port and I have swapped it between a four year old Dell laptop and a six month old Gateway laptop, both run XP. The USB connector looks fragile. I signed a two year agreement, and I have serious doubts that the card is going to make it to the end of the contract. However, in the four months I've owned it I've given it a few accidental knocks and it hasn't snapped off.
There have been a couple of issues that required a call to tech support. I was very happy to reach domestic centers on both occasions. After bad experiences with Sony tech support compounding the aggravation of technical problems with language and cultural barriers, domestic tech support is high on my priority list.
The monthly fee is $59.99 for virtually unlimited access; 5G a month should be plenty for browsing and email. Tack on about another $20/month to your bill just for the taxes and junk fees. My monthly phone bill, with another carrier, suffers from the same type of surcharge inflation.
Highly recommended for laptop owners who want to cut the cord. If you use your laptop in the same spot every day - go with a cheaper DSL service.
