wireless broadband

i was just wondering if anyone has tried the wireless braodband and what they think of it.

I am thinking now of the Unwired 512/128 plan to do a little gaming on.

reason the wireless is better as there is currently no phone line to put the adsl line through as i have waited over 3 months for the second phone line to be put in and it is always 'next week' so i have given up on that altogether.

but i want fast downloads and enough speed to play lineage 2

i have heard that wireless is the poormans adsl. should i just give it ago.

Question: Why are you getting a second line for your ADSL? If you want your old phone too ADSL does it fine through filtering, so there's no point in getting a second line.

Anyway, 512Kb/s = 64KB/s = 225MB per hour. And that's at best, so there's your download speed. My guess would be around 200MB per hour... Looks like it can game well as well.

For the sake of security I wouldn't get wireless _anything_, but whatever, I ain't your significant other, get it if you feel like it.
