said by BiggA:Noted, but I've yet to understand why data speeds matter so, especially on a tiny handset, in the context of the forum poster (not you) who rails against usage-based charges for data, and in this case, volume charges that even I might consider on the high side at $21-30/marginal GB. If you're tethering, there are better ways to handle both itinerant, intermittent, and volume use.
Metro=1xRTT, roaming on Sprint
Ting= WiMAX/EVDO Rev.A, roaming on Verizon
The data prices are bad if you look at them per GB. However, if you have a family of 4 or 5 that each averages 400MB/mo, or may even less, just for basic mobile web/email and occasional streaming, and you compare that to a Verizon plan, this could really be huge.
