i used to think these high-speed cell phone services would make cable internet obsolete, but in reality it wont happen. people forget about latencies, i dont care how fast your wireless connection is, it will never have as little overhead as a hard-line cable connection does. HSDPA will be absolutely awesome to have for your laptop, but its not something people are going to want to game on all the time...

i wish tmo would do something temporary to up the speeds of EDGE, or at least help the stability. i cannot stay active on my tethered laptop for more then a few minutes, it always freezes the connection forcing me to re-connect.
