EVDO on the MacBook Pro

After Kat’s great experience with Sprint’s EVDO Broadband Internet Service I decided to pick up a card for the Mac since I’ll be traveling a bit this summer.

You can’t activate the EVDO card on a Mac so I ordered from these from EVDO Info. They activate it for you. I haven’t tried Sprints software via Parallels yet – supposedly sometimes that works.

If you need mobile internet I can’t recommend these cards enough. They’re pretty fast, work with SSH and aren’t too expensive ($60/mo). Kat had coverage pretty much all the way across the US.

As always – it “just worked” on the Mac. I didn’t even need their drivers.
All in all – much better than dealing with hotel headaches, paying outrageous rates at the airport, etc.
