First the home phone, now this.

My 19 year old has convinced us to switch to Sprint, because they have unlimited 3G data.

And then, he rooted my Galaxy S phone and installed a third party hotspot program.

I have been running the computer off the phone connection and it is not bad. It runs at about 500k, which is not as fast as RoadRunner (15 M) but ok for what I do.

I am seriously considering disconnecting the cable to save the money it costs right now $40 per month, but after a year it doubles to $80 a month.

I don't see any down side to this.
