I've got EVDO service from Verizon. It's awesome - you get broadband speed 
anywhere your cell phone works, nationwide.  A list of such places: 

I've found in to be more reliable than coffee shop wifi, though marginally 
slower than SBC cheapo DSL.  Console jockeys should note that ping times are 
around 200ms - not terrible, but noticable.

Service costs $60/month, which is less than I'd spend on DSL at home & coffee 
shops. This site has lots of good info & will also sell you a card - highly 
recommended: http://www.evdoinfo.com
