On of the things I read today struck a chord in me. Forum post of opinion that we think dropped calls, no service are problems now wait 'til you throw in data, internet! As much trouble as I went thru to get excellent roaming coverage w/Verizon, it makes sense that when I want to browse or transmit data that will be a different system than phone I want to place call from wherever I might drive to. http://www.wirelessweek.com/index.a...vertical=Wireless+Internet&industry=Broadband GoAmerica Goes For WAN/LAN Offering By Kristy Bassuener March 18, 2002 GoAmerica Inc. today announces that it will begin offering its corporate customers a combined WAN/LAN solution by combining its offerings with those of Boingo Wireless and hereUare.
