I know someone who can't set up wired internet (DSL/Cable/Fios) at home at the moment. They need a wireless solution with decent speeds. Hotspots aren't an acceptable option right now.

Tried Verizon's USB wireless solution which runs about $60 a month and taps the 3G network. I don't know if it was a coverage issue, but we couldn't get above 0.5 Mbps on three different computers at two locations. Incredibly slow... Fortunately it was a free 1 month trial and has been returned.

I know ATT has an option out there but the contract looks steep.

I really need to get them online at decent speeds. We're looking into satellite. Anyone with a positive experience that has an idea?

I have a coworker who uses Clear and hasn't had any problems. Not sure if its available where you are though

The site says it's not available here. :( Looks cool though.

There are site-rip service available out there. Ask your friend which sites he wanted and rip the whole site down into an USB drive. That should be enough porn for him for a while.

This is for a work-at-home situation and they need to connect to a vpn and have a lot of downloads/uploads. Slow internet makes this painful and nearly impossible.

Where are you?

See if any WiMax options are available.

Found one called broadskynetworks but it appears to be a minimum of $100/mo. Too much.

Just curious...why isn't their employer helping them find an ISP capable of supporting their Work@Home needs?
