So, i’m currently on a train heading to Manhattan moving at about 60-70MPH. I’m connected via usb to my Nokia N95 at the moment, using it as a wireless broadband modem. Now, of course its nothing like wifi/landline 100MBit but darn if this isn’t usable. Not only can I aim/SSH wherever from the comfort of a full laptop keyboard and screen but I was also able to VNC into my home computer (on very low setting but it worked nonetheless) and actually accomplish some tasks using a graphical interface remotely.
Take that apple fans.
Update: I’m now at penn station and I’m guessing theres a tower nearby. Latency and bandwidth here are excellent: I’m browsing the net and its barely noticeably different from home wifi. Pages load in a low-single digit number of seconds.
