Just a heads up to peeps like me who live outside cable and dsl area's. Just got this installed today and it works great. Don't know how accurate speedtest is but it says I'm getting 25 Mbs down/17 Mbs up. Latency has been anywhere from 50 ms to 70 ms. I play on Xbox Live quite a bit from time to time and it works pretty well on there, no lag. I did have to configure some port forwarding and port triggering, and that was a bit of a headache (at first i just configured port forwarding and it was iffy, but after I set up port triggering it has worked well).

It's kind of expensive and it's obviously not for those who already have cable/dsl access, but if all you've got is satellite or dial-up or even using a hotspot on your phone like I was, this is way better.

It looks alright for people outside of Cable/DSL, but what blows is it has Data caps. I would be careful about how much online gaming, and downloading you do the first month or so till you figure out how much data you will regularly use. Just my .02...

Gaming doesn't use a whole lot of data, unlike streaming videos, that's the real killer. I've gauged my data use before for online gaming and it only uses about 150 mb's an hour (depending on the game). For the first 2 months Verizon gives you 50% more data allowance so you can see what plan really fits you.

But yeah, data caps suck. If it were unlimited I'd get a netflix account and be set.
