New wireless 'internet can't hide' service

Anyone tried the Verizon or AT & T wireless internet service yet?

Verizon wants $60 a month and a 2 year contract.

I have both. The AT&T service is on my iphone and it's fairly slow. I have the Verizon USB dongle and I've been very surprised with the speed. It's close to broadband and performs very well. I would go with the Verizon service.

I think "Edge" is AT&T. Verizon's is called "one fast mofo!"
