Verizon Prices


I'm on their national broadband plan, and that costs $69.00 per month for unlimited usage. The card cost less the $100. All that was of course with a 2 year contract.

I will say, with your national phone plan you can get on their network (#777) via a data ready phone and USB adapter cable. Going that way will cost you minutes off your regular phone plan.

If you're like me, and need the internet for business, then the bulk plan is best.

hi sky watchers......

heard at the rv show last month that kvh tracvision was supposed to roll out a dual purpose dish this month...tv and web...priced under 2k$ for the gear and reasonable monthly tab....

anyone got an update on this..



the broadband tele may be fine in those tiny northeastern states...
but west of the mississippi......and rural it is of no real value...
all of the true things that i am about to tell you are shameless lies. l.b.j.

we are here on earth to fart around. don't let anybody tell you any different. k.v.

Hi gadgetat--Thanks for the quick response. I'm going to spend some time with Verizon to determine what would be best for me. Currently I am not close to using all my minutes, so maybe extra minutes with #777 may be the way to go.--Frank S

I used a Verizon aircard all weekend while at the Cherry Blossom Rally (which was a blast!) just south of DC in a horse pasture, and it did everything I expected. It was slow, but I have a slow dial-up at home, so I'm used to it. I primarily used it to keep up with my work e-mail, and to read the forums and news. 2air is right, broadband would be nice, but the current state of coverage, even in the northeast, isn't good enough to justify the expense.
