Hi guys -- My bro-in-law is getting his first computer (he's 47 and has been living under a smoke haze rock all his life) and doesn't have nor want cable but needs Internet access. I seem to recall cards (Sprint?) that ppl who travel use with little antennae, like a PCMCIA card? Anyone know about these or an alternative? Costs? Thanks bunches.

Sprint just announced a 5gb cap per month. Check out Clear.

Clear is really bad from what I hear
A friend had it & returned it

He can also get web access without cable TV too

What do you mean he "doesn't have nor want cable"? If he doesn't need to travel and lives in a populated area, DSL is exponentially cheaper than cellular, and usually isn't capped at 5GB like cellular internet is. He doesn't have to rewire his house, he can get DSL through his phone company with a wireless router and go that route.

There you go. It'll cost 1/2 as much as an aircard.
