    I have been a customer of Southwestern Bell Mobile Systems, SBC Wireless, Cingular and now AT&T for 12 years now and they tend to have the best and fastest network around…in most cities I have been to. I never use Wi-fi anymore unless its free…otherwise I tether my laptop and get broadband speeds. I ran a Skype call while online on Second Life while tethered to my Blackjack…pretty impressive.
