My boss is looking at getting an aircard ( internet over cell network ) for his laptop. One of the uses he mentioned was gotomypc. I couldn't find good information on it, but I was thinking it would blow out the bandwidth because it was like streaming a movie. Is gotomypc really feasible with an aircard at this point?

Most aircards have monthly throughput caps (Verizon is, or recently was, 5 Gb, I think), with a charge for every extra Mb over. If your boss is going to use GoToMyPC a lot, he's probably gonna go over each month. However, all those cards come with software that track bytes in and out, so you could teach him how to monitor his usage.

We'd like to figure out if we can afford this before we sign up, find out it's too expensive, and cancel it. We don't have an aircard already. – user13743 Mar 12 '10 at 19:17
