you need service provider and a router. Do you know if Innovative, BBVI, or Choice is available there?

Let me say...the BEST wireless service I have had in years is through my phone. I use ATT, but I think that any Android phone will give you similar results.

I pay $20 extra on my ATT bill for the service. All I have to do is plug my phone into my desk top or laptop ans VOILA!...I am online...and it is so much cheaper than the other options...

You might want to check with your condo association. Do they have something in place??

BBVI is wireless DSL, but they require direct line of site to their tower, and mounting an external modem. Innovative advertises "MobileNet" on their site, but I can't find anything about it; their main internet services is standard wired DSL. Choice is WiMAX, but poorly maintained. They have a modem you can use in your home, but signal is extremely unpredictable -- your next door neighbor could have full 4 bars, but you may only get 1...(happened to me)

Then you have the mobile options, original designed to work with laptops (eg; not full apartment networks); Sprint and AT&T your best options for those. If you're an avid internet user, I do not recommend AT&T. Their plans, and prices, are designed for the occasional user and really sicks it hard to any core internet consumer.
