David has heard about ClearBand wireless internet called OMGFast for $29.99 a month for 50MBPS. Leo says it's essentially WiMax and suggests going to BroadbandReports.com to find out what others think and get reviews. Users are reporting a constant 45-55mbps down, 4mbps up consistently. Latency isn't great for real time gaming or VOIP.
Always remember that mileage may vary. Others are saying that it's inconsistent as well. One downside is that he'd have to use their router, and he may have to pay for equipment. People seem to be quite happy with it, nonetheless.
