    @JFB I really appreciate the personal interest you've taken in this technology because it helps keep all of us informed. For me, at least at this moment, the only financial benefit might be extended access to wifi at a cheap cost. But i don't even know if extended wifi is an option without also getting their calling plans. My current data & cellular plan (AT&T Mobile Share Value Plan with unlimited text, talk, and 15Gb data/month with rollover data) is more than enough for me. I also have Comcast as my home TV & internet provider which has wifi coverage throughout the USA. So right now anything else would be an added cost and not one where I could eliminate some other service.

    The downside for me is that I am not usually I one spot long enough for me to use wi-fi... And my job doesn't allow me to use it. Although sprint is OK in urban areas, they don't quite do it for me.
