I used to use Cellular South. Don't know if anyone has ever heard of them here. Trotter probably has. But anyway, I could get service basically in places that you couldn't even think of.

I use AT&T now and get just enough service at my house to fail about 3/4 of all the text messages I send. But, I travel more than I am at home so thats really not a big issue for me.

After talking to a guy in London ( I think), he says that the government will get them internet via cell phone companies or whatever if they aren't able to get it at their home through landline. Though that was pretty neat.

How costly is it to get wireless internet for your laptop through ATT? Might could write that off for company expenses, not sure.

And they have 4G phones out already I believe, or so the ads for the phones say :/
