One thing that you do want to keep in mind is that ATT/TMobile/etc might
support a certain band on their network as a whole but might not have it in
your area. If there is a better alternative dongle out there that would fit
USA better, I'm all ears. Let me know and we'll look into it.
Also a reminder, this isn't a sale. There will be no markup in any of this,
and my company isn't involved whatsoever. I could just buy 20 or so of them
and sell them at a markup, but I'm not really into that side of things. So,
just because I'm emailing from a company domain DOES NOT mean that my
company is involved. </rant>
