What kind of speed do you get? Is this satellite or cellular?

It looks like we will be checking into Time Warner. Sallie and I each have a laptop and we are usually on line at the same time. We have been doing campground WiFi and Cable with a wireless router..

It's cellular. TW uses Sprints cell towers. Speed seems OK but then, I'm not a gamer. I just surf and do email.

I'm not a gamer either. I just don't like listening to my arteries hardening while waiting for a web page to download.

I carry both AT&T (personal) and Verizon (work), and I recently had a Sprint device.

Biggest problem I have is with 3G coverage. I have generally found that AT&T's 3G is mainly just in the bigger cities. I have rarely camped and not been on EDGE (the slower AT&T network). It is pretty much unusable for anything other than basic service.

Verizon on the other hand has been much better about giving me high speed (they call it EVDO) in rural areas. Even when it drops to their slower network (1X), it is much faster than AT&T. In most cases Sprint will roam over to Verizon in rural areas.

Best deal I have seen right now for RVers is the Virgin Mobile Broadband2Go. It is pay as you go, $50 a month for Unlimited. I like it because you can pay for 3 or 4 months during the summer and then drop it without penalty. Only downside is coverage is not as good in rural (uses sprint) so check the map before purchasing.

I use the Verizon Mi-Fi for home and on the road (we live in an area with no cable or even decent land line phone service, tried satellite, hated it). I also have a Zboost to pump up the signal to allow me to use it in the home as well as in the trailer. I have a 24 ft PVC pole and the Zboost antennea when trailing (fixed at home). We were able to get phone and wireless at the campground in Devil's Postpile National Park!!! Neighbors would come around, bring a chair and make calls and check e-mail, pretty funny.
