What's the best service for the US?

I'm in the market for a new cell phone and I want to get one that I can hook up to my laptop for internet access if needed. Can anyone suggest any networks that have a good size network with decent connection speeds? I've heard some things about AT&T's edge network, but do not really know about any of the others.

I'm in N. Central Florida if it matters.

I have an uncle by almost marriage that uses sprint's wireless pc service. I was actually suprised at how fast it was.

I've used Verison in the past. They have two levels of serveice based on bandwitdh. Of course the fatter the pipe (or wireless pipe in this case) the more they charged.

I used them around 1 1/2 years ago. It uses your minutes that your cell phone would normally use at the time of connection. The charges come for the fatter pipe. I used to camp and work on my web site. Man what a fool I was ;).

Worked a charm.

Take care,
