    <A href="http://www.pdqlink.com/wisp/maps.htm">Here's</a> a link with a bunch of wireless ISP's. This listing is from the Wireless Internet Service Providers Association.

    Hope that helps in your search!

    There aren't any wireless internet providers that have coverage for the majority of the US. This is still relatively new technology. Coverage will only be available in major metropolitan areas and very large cities.

    Check with your local telephone company.....they should be able to help you.
    especially if it Sprint/Earthlinks
