Metricom is a internet service provider which is curently building its "foot print" in the USA. Company web site: http://www.metricom.com/ About (Taken directly from there web site) Ricochet offers mobile professionals an easy to use, always-on, reliable mobile access solution that keeps you connected to your customers, the Internet, the office and mission-critical information at a flat rate price. It's reliable broadband access without the wires. With Ricochet, you get full access to information at 128 kbps - true mobile freedom for the first time. Mobility Freedom to Work When and Where You Choose. Stay connected anywhere in coverage areas, without a phone line. The service works indoors and out, and can even connect when traveling at speeds up to 70 miles per hour-while taking a taxi, on a commuter train home, or other mass transit. Ricochet gives you the flexibility to work efficiently out of the office, to add balance to your work and home life. Speed High-Speed, High-Performance Connectivity. Regardless of whether you are searching the Internet, responding to an urgent e-mail, or simply accessing company information, speed and performance are everything. With most mobile users, the faster the better because high-performance means working with information effectively. With speeds of 128 kbps, Ricochet is more than six times faster than any other service available to the mobile user. For example, alternatives such as Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) offer mobility, but they are slower at speeds of 9.6 kbps to 14.4 kbps. Reliability Reliability You Can Count On. The Ricochet network uses Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technology to ensure reliable connectivity every time -without dropped connections or busy signals. As with Cellular alternatives, if lines are continually being dropped, or if there's difficulty gaining access to information -mobile access does not provide value. Ricochet gives you the reliability you can count on. Coverage Widespread Coverage. And like most users, to truly take advantage of mobile access, it needs to be available wherever mobile professionals are likely to work. Today, Ricochet is available at 128 kbps in the following major metropolitan areas: Atlanta, Baltimore, Dallas, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Los Angeles, Minneapolis St. Paul, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, San Francisco Bay Area and San Diego and 15 airports nationwide. These areas join the Washington DC and Seattle 28.8 kbps service areas, allowing Ricochet users to take advantage of the freedom of wireless mobility on a nationwide basis. Security Secure Connections. Recognizing that secure access to information is just as important for mobile access as it is at the office, Ricochet was designed to provide the highest level of security. Our patented mesh architecture allows for efficient, secure transfer of data, and fast access to a variety of individual, enterprise, national, and international networks. The network architecture uses Frequency Hopping Spread Spectrum technology designed by the military. That means it is virtually impossible to intercept or tamper with data transmissions sent or received by you. Ease of Use/Compatibility Get Productive, Fast. The Ricochet wireless modem operates in much the same way as a phone modem. Simply plug the modem into a PC laptop; it uses the existing software, automatically dials the appropriate number, and immediately delivers high-speed mobile access. It is 100 percent Internet Protocol (IP) compatible-making it the perfect solution for enterprise applications. Further, this easy to use solution doesn't require additional middleware to get you connected. Pricing Predictable, Set Billing. With No Surprises. Ricochet offers unlimited usage for a flat monthly rate. That means you have access to the Ricochet network 24 hours a day for the same low predictable price - no worries about complicated billing options with per kilobyte or per minute charges.

You simply select an Ricochet Authorized Service Provider and the Ricochet modem that works best for you.
