Hello Sprint EVDO Goodbye AT&T DSL!
Although I haven't yet managed to cancel my AT&T DSL order yet (I only had 5-6 hops before giving up, which reminded me of the reason I a year ago never to use them again) but after 24 hours I've given up. The service tech was nice enough, but DSL Self Install kit never arrived and I could never get a dial tone. Maybe the three daisy-chained telephone network interfaces had something to do with it. Or maybe it was the rats nest mix of Cat 5 and 1950's era kit, but I started looking for wireless alternatives. I've only been logged with the Novatal U727 (on my Powerbook, it supposedly works with Linux, too) for 32 minutes but so far so good.
