Just wondering how fast it is compared to my Cable modem??? I am taking a different job and I need an instant connection anywhere for school. Is it quick? how much slower than my Cable modem? is it worth the 70.00 a month for service?

Depends on your cable service. I know my roadrunner is a bit slower than my comcast cable.

If this is the service you're referring to,

It will be signifigantly slower than cable. most cable is at least 3Mbs, and verizon says average download speeds are 400-700kbps, which is .4-.7 Mbs.

Whether or not it's worth it depends on how bad you need it.
