Hi,
Woosh has been fantastic at the beginning but I still find it slow. Additionaly my new laptop has an express card slot instead the PC card, the woosh modem is a PC card.
They proposed me to buy a big modem from them, however my point is: light, freedom to access from anywhere.

Do you know if this 100% wireless broadband is provided by some other companies than Woosh? Does anyone ahs one of their plans and is satisfied?

thanks!

Vodafones 3G service with a vodem or VMC card could be the go, assuming you have 3G coverage where you are. If you go on a 24month plan its $99 for the vodem and $49/month for 1GByte which you can top up for $10 for another 1G in anyone month. Speeds can vary from 800kb/s to 3.2Mb/s depending on lots a variables.

Telecom may have a similar offer.

Thank you Cyril for this prompt answer. Yes I know the Vodem.

I am trying to find a bigger plan than 1G and a shorter contract or no contract...

I know I want a lot, but geekzone is about getting the best...isn't it?
 thanks
