XOHM: Really an Alternative? - Using XOHM
(Page 3 of 4 )
If you’re in Baltimore (or you simply like to plan ahead), you’ll probably want to learn more about using XOHM as an alternative to existing systems. Windows laptops can use XOHM through the Samsung SWC-E100 Express Card (retailing for $59.99 USD) or ZyXel’s home modem ($79.99 USD). ZyXel’s product, unlike Samsung’s, works with both Mac and Windows. Lenovo is also currently working on six new products which will feature built-in XOHM technology.
So, XOHM is faster than traditional cable and DSL. XOHM is compatible with wireless and mobile devices. XOHM is also brand new and could in fact change the way we look at the Internet. Doesn’t that mean it’s not going to even begin to enter the realm of affordability for another few years?
Currently, Sprint is charging $35 USD per month for home services (which works with a home-based modem) and $45 per month for the “On the go” plan using ExpressCard. The “Pick 2” program allows Internet users to use XOHM on two devices (a home modem and an ExpressCard, perhaps) for $65 per month. Or, if you don’t want a long-term XOHM commitment, you can give the service a shot for only $10 per day. Buyers won’t be subject to contracts or credit checks with any XOHM plan, but there are no special deals or discounts for current Sprint users (yet).
After signing up for XOHM service (which can be done via Internet), you’ll enter the ID number found on your WiMAX device. Through XOHM’s connection software, you’ll be plugged right into the service and plugging into a faster Internet.
