So Long Unlimited Data

March 21, 2011 8:17:33.425

I finally pulled the plug on my unlimited iPhone data plan - I needed to travel to NYC this morning, and I needed network access. The Acela has WiFi, but when it's your own nickel, it's a bit pricey (which is really something that the HSR backers need to consider).

Anyway - a quick phone call to AT&T and I was sharing a hotspot with my Mac, my work laptop, and my daughter's Mac. I can work, as the VPN connection worked out as well. A bit slower than what I'm used to at home, but hey - it works. I'll have to watch the b/w usage; I already explained to my daughter that streaming video is not something we want to use on this :)

Remember Google/Other maps as well!

My personal #1 reason for high bandwidth costs when visiting new cities (usually amplified by being abroad as well, though...)
