High Speed Roaming 3G Wireless Service in Houston for $60!?

While upgrading my phone at Cingular recently, I learned that Cingular now offers unlimited 3G wireless service for $59.99 per month to its regular cellphone subscribers. More details here.

The 3G service claims an average download time of 400-700Kbps with bursts up to 1.8Mbps. It’s slightly below DSL, but hey, it’s also very competitively priced. If anything, this will put increased downward pressure on prices for DSL and broadband services locally.
