    Broadband Wireless News Groups?

    Seems I've wound up in the wrong place.

    I'm trying to find out if there is/are news group(s) related to the 3D
    or Edge Broadband wireless service, such as that offered by AT&T,
    Verizon, and Sprint. I'd like to get a current evaluation of their
    various services.

    Googling for comparisons only brings up articles that are a year or more
    older. Certainly in this technology, things are changing more rapidly
    than that.

    Thanks for your help and patience.

    Thanks, DTC,

    But, those NG's seem to be oriented to the cellular offerings rather
    than the broadband wireless. I already read the Sprint group, as I have
    their cellular service.

    since the "3D" or is that "3G" service is offered by these carriers,
    that would seem to be the best place to find out what's happening,
    other than the techy websites that can also be found.

    Now if you are talking about WiMax or other services like Muni WiFi,
    those would usually be discussed again in some of the tech websites.
    I've found the DSLREPORTS.COM website to be helpful with news & tidbits.

    Actually they do have the occasional rant over data cards.
    Ask the NG what you want to know and you'll get some good answers.

    Yup, think I saw one or two posts on the broadband service on the Sprint
    website, but nothing terribly informative. Also, found some good stuff
    on dslreports regarding the so-called "unlimited" Verizon service--seems
    they have a 5 GB cap/month.

    One of the reasons I asked is that AT&T has a deal going on now such
    that if you order one of their USB broadband cards (NOT PCMCIA), you get
    it free. The catch is that you have to go for a 2-year contract. I'd
    hate to get stuck on that only to find out the service is not as good as
    Sprint's for instance. (Verizon is out of the picture now, for obvious
    reasons!) AT&T price is $59.99/month for Unlimited; and, I haven't read
    anywhere (so far) that they've set a cap as has Verizon.
