I use a PC card express from Verizon for a Mac - its not what I would like to use (compared to cable - even DSL for that matter) but you can use it anywhere you want. Also you're going to pay a lot. I'm forking over $60 a month for 5GB and I don't use up even close to that much; just barely over one. Although I'm not streaming video - but do go to You Tube once in awhile (you wouldn't be able to stream video even if you wanted, not good enough to handle it). But its a pain it doesn't stream video very well and some sites that use sophisticated video (I guess more pixel or whatever) like training video's for Adobe you won't get at all not even after it completely up loads (type of thing) the hiccups stay in the upload (why, I couldn't tell ya). So by all means - if you can avoid it - do so - but if you're like me that's stuck with it - then check into what laptop you wanna use and then see what it's compatible with - and as far as selection goes as to who the "provider" will be? I think your stuck with what one or two are in your area... But let me know if there is anyway to "optimize" this connection to make it better (I'm all ears). Nothing is better than cable (except if you have fiber optics yet).
