Internet Sticks

I am wondering who is the best provider for the "Internet Sticks" Rogers, Bell or Telus. Bell and Telus provide the up to 21mbps and Rogers is only 7.2. Is this true. What kind of experiences of you had?

You may wish to search on sticks in the wireless forums as there are several discussions under the various porviders.

You won't get anywhere near the theoretical speed anyway in most cases.

Also check Wind Mobile. I believe they have unlimited bandwidth with cap on DL speed after you hit a number of GB.

These mobile plans are a rip...doesn't matter who you're with. Just means with those speeds you'll get to your cap that much faster.

$50/month for 2GB? Are you serious????

Well, it depends on where you live, doesn't it?

Rogers network will be evolving from 3.5G (up to 7.2 Mbps) to HSPA+ (up to 21 Mbps)1. Roll-out is ongoing beginning with Vancouver, Calgary, Toronto Ottawa and Montreal in September. Check back for updates on our progress in rolling out HSPA+ from coast-to-coast.

its not just where you live, but using wording such as "rogers is only 7.2" is also misleading for someone whos in the market for a 21 mbps rocket stick and happens to live in the right area.
