Using Windows Push Email in America

Posted on 2008-11-10

We have Exchange and use Windows Push email on Vodafone effectively in the uk.   However, I've got a user that travels to the states on a regular basis.   When he's over there he suffers from intermittent service and failed synchronisation.  He also has a mobile USB data modem that again seems to fail intermittently and/or be slow.

I'm know looking for a solution.  Perhaps using an American Contract.

Whats the best service over there?  Has anyone else got this issue?

    Alot depends on his location. The big providers are AT&T, Sprint,  and Verizon. They all offer Laptop Connect cards. Personally, I have been on AT&T for years and the service is pretty quick in metropolitain areas. There are alot of third generation towers up and running.

    AT&T would be fine. The VPN works pretty well, especially for email. We have a couple users on CAD and that takes a lillte bit to open a drawing. I havent run a speedtest in a while, but I am pretty sure I was getting over 500k down and 300 up.
