Visafone Evdo Experiences, Anyone?

So has anyone here jumped on the Visafone EVDO bandwagon? If so, I'd like to know the following:

1. What's the maximum download speed like for the 600kbps package?

2. Is there any monthly bandwidth cap?

3. What is the latency like?

4. When connected, do you get a proper public IP address? Or are you behind a NAT?

Answers will be appreciated. Thanks.

I have used starcomms and Visaphone and I must say that I was very impressed by the Visaphone Evdo. The starcomms izap gave me so much probelems that I was actually discouraged from getting any other evdo product.

I used the Visaphone Silver Evdo which is 24/7, in Portharcourt, Abuja and Lagos.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

My simple advise don't go with visafone if you aren't sure. I got myself tortured by Mts worst wireless and it wasn't a good experience

sometimes i wonder, is there anyother alternative than having to go out through SAT 3, ?

I thot Globacom was a SNO, and they should have their own Fiber optic cable, out of Nigeria,

no wonder internet in nigeria is CRAP, the issue is most of the ISPs have a very good internal network structure,

but the main problem is getting to the internet if they have to depend on a solitary point, the point is obviously gonna get congested.

also i think MTN has a fiber optic cable around africa, why can't they just use it or something, believe me, a fiber optic connectivity is way better than a VSAT, trust me when i say that,

I have been using Visafone in calabar for the past month with 24hrs services but I have lost 15days of no network due to Nitel strike. If you are in Lagos or Abuja , they are not the best but for the eastern part of Nigeria, they still need some time to set up their own network. I believe in the next 3 months, yes they will be good all round.

just a side-talk, visafone is owned by Jim Ovia so u should expect them to integrate a lot of IT stuffz. So even if their internet is not very good now, expect them to improve in the nearest future
