I'm no technology wiz, by any means, but Converge Now Broadband Wireless Internet looks like a great idea, and quite affordable. Their residential plan is $29.95/mo, ten bucks more than what I'm currently paying for plain old (slow and wired) dial-up from Earthlink. At that price level they offer connection speeds of 256 kbps, wirelessly -- not too shabby! Of course there is a service agreement/installation cost of $250 up front and I can't tell from looking at their limited info (they should have an FAQ page) on their website if that $250 would have to be paid each year as part of a service agreement or not (I doubt it, since it seems like most of the expense would be associated with installation/set-up in the currently wired home).
