Thinking of giving it a go....

Sometimes "unlimited" is 4gb a month, hopefully it's not the case here. I'm rather skeptical about virgin's 3G coverage in missouri as well.

Virgin uses Sprint's network, so whatever 3G Sprint has is what Virgin has.

Orange is Sprint 3G
Dark Gray is 3G Roaming with limited access (and probably speeds)
Light Gray is data roaming, so whatever is less than 3G for Sprint (and with limited access and speeds)
White is no coverage


Guess you had better not get too far from the interstate.
Here is a closer look at Rolla:

For more info, check sprint's site here.

Im not so concerned abt the AREA it covers as I am abt the AMOUNT being unlimited.

If it says "unlimited"... it should be "as much as you want"... not capped at 4 or 5 gig

I wouldn't mind seeing somebody put that to the test. Just download and seed torrents 24/7 for a few months and completely saturate the connection. I wonder if they'll still be saying it's really unlimited.

Yes! Id like to see if they REALLY mean unlimited!

Especially before I invest $80 for the dongle or $130 for the wireless router!
