    Do you mean high speed internet on my cell or actual wireless internet at home? I didn't think my Small Town American home had this available so I haven't even educated myself on this EVDO stuff yet!!

    At home, since we are out in the woods, about 5 miles from town, and the American Tower on Snipe Lake (Vilas Cty) in CellOne-compatible, how could this wireless internet happen at home for us with only one-bar of reception (or less)....only WITH a cell-booster system??

    We do have DSL at home via Verizon, which I do believe is a wireless system somehow...i don't know why i think that...maybe something they told me when they set it up in December....?

    Hehe I said that. But it doesn't matter :) . It would likely require a booster in order to get it to work at your house. But if you had better signal you could get a card for your computer, or with a usb cable and "tether" your phone and computer together. Of course it would require an EVDO handset like the razr, lg 8600, u520, e815, krzr, or one of the smartphones. But since you have DSL already at home it is probably cheaper, i think the very basic dsl from verizon is 15 a month. To add a data plan to tether it is 29.99. You can also just "dial up" at evdo speeds, using minutes from your plan (unlimited night and weekends would come in handy).
