>There is no routing through the BES to reduce data usage correct?

Correct.

>Am I correct that usage is as a regular wireless data connection?

Correct.

>I could easily blow through the data cap right? And pay BIG overages?

Correct.

>What are the real costs in running an Edge/Evdo BB as a modem?

They usually spelled on a wireless provider web site, in dollars per megabyte.

>Has anyone gotten confirmed connection speeds of the EVDO blackberry? It would be interesting to see how fast one can blow through the data cap.

Connection speed does not matter. www.cnn.com web page will be of the same size in kilobytes regardless of connection speed. Non-stop 24 hours downloading with GPRS will blow you through Rogers data cap in just few days.

>Lastly can anyone confirm if being on a BES will have any benefit to using this as a modem?

Confirmed.
