I suggest that, if you enable EVDO/Broadband on your Verizon wireless 
account, you sign up for the  "all you can eat" data plan. The sooner 
you do it the better, also, because that way you will be "grandfathered" 
in case Verizon Wireless down the road decides to make the broadband 
data plans less generous as the increased demand from users for 
broadband access puts pressure on the broadband capacity of the their 

By way of example, look at what happened with text messaging which, all 
of a sudden, is producing ~40% of the profits in the mobile industry in 
the U.S. (or at least that is what was reported in the news today). This 
result was achieved by the mobile service providers tinkering with the 
text messaging plans and increasing the price for "excess" messages over 
you plan limit from $.05 to $.10 and then to $.15 at least in the case 
of Verizon Wireless.  I understand that at least one carrier plans to 
start charging $.20 per excess text message. Here is the url to the www 
page at the Marketplace radio program www site that has the article:
