I've had Cingular before and there Edge technology is really slow compared to Verizon EVDO technology. However, I use an old Motorola E815 and have used the device as a modem to my laptop of the past year or two. This is before they installed the firmware and you can use the device as a modem and tether for free. Well not free b/c it cost you minutes but you catch my drift. You don't even need to get V-Cast. Anyway, b/c the device has an internal antenna it works @ speeds of 250-290 Kbps whereas the E815 works from 350 Kbps up to the highest I've seen @ 500 Kbps. The speeds made me go back to Verizon and I've never looked back.
