The technology is emerging and is quite ugly with the antennas at the present time..

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

appreciate the suggestions, but these may be a bit extreme for me.
I have heard that i can connect thru cell phone?
any more mainstream options even though they may be slower?

Well dang it.  Go to http://www.verizonwireless.com and look for:  Sierra Wireless Aircard 555D

Click on the business link on the left and drop down to mobible professional and GO.  Then click on the "see more devices" and it's in that list.

You need to get a data plan and equipment from a wireless service provider. As mentioned above, you can go thru verizon or another cell provider in your area who offers what you need. You need to go talk to your cell providers in your area for prices and information.

These are "always on" connections that use cellular technology to connect you. Make sure you get an actual data plan using cell technology and NOT just simply purchase wifi access (t-mobile offers both data plans AND also paid access to their wifi access points such as the ones in Starbucks).

With this, you'll have access wherever you can pick up a signal from your cell provider.

If your laptop has an infrared port or you have a data cable, you can use your cell phone as a modem.  The speeds are not that fast.  Cingular has some software on thier site that will tell you how to do this.

I use Sprints PCS vision service (15 smackers a month, unlimitted internet).  I get about 12k a second through my phone and they now offer one in bluetooth (I use a usb cable which conveniently recharges my phone at the same time, though this can degrade laptop battery performance).  Extremely easy to setup.

You have to stay connected 24/7 ...or just want to be able to jump on whenever and wherever you stop?

If you just want to stop and connect.. Tmobile's hotspot works great... at every Starbucks, Kinko's/Fedex, etc..
