"Excellent Card -- Has external antennas"5.0 starson by dpf
Pros: Easy Install, has external antenna port, great service
Cons: Had to disable compressions software with help of tech support
Summary: This is an outstanding card. I'm using it in Manhatten. I had to disable the compression software in order to get it to work with the help of tech support (call number listed in the Verizon data card application software).
You can test your speed at site infospeed.version.net. I typically get 400 kbps download, 50 kbps upload day and night. Response time (latency) is very good and people don't realize they are on Verizon Wireless Data when web browsing unless I tell them.
Card cost ($179 with 2 year service which gives you $60/month broadband) is not much amortized over 2 year usage contract.
Verizon sells a couple of external antennas but there is another useful one for internal (desk) use on the Kyocera site.
