I have 3G Verizon wireless here. I don't have any cable or DSL available where I live, so my three choices are wireless broadband, satellite, or dial up. Yes, there are people in my area still on dial up! My d/l speeds are typically 1-2 Mb/s depending on what time of day it is and upload is always the same. Supposedly we're going to be getting 4G by next year but I am going to keep my grandfathered unlimited 3G plan to save money.
