|Wireless DSL? Wireless Broadband? Portable Broadband? Broadband Anywhere? Power On The Go?
The 1USA Wireless Broadband service does not require any phone lines. It is a small USB device that plugs into a USB Port on your laptop or desktop computer, and connects to Cell Phone Towers in your vicinity for Internet at speeds up to 3MB per second.
Just about every computer made since 2003 has a USB Port or two. Some are on the front, others are on the back of the computer.
The USB Transceiver can be unplugged from one computer and plugged into another.
You're not limited to using only one computer. Carry the USB Transceiver with you and plug it into any computer, install the software, and if you can receive a signal... you're on Broadband! It's THAT easy.
It works indoors & outdoors -- anywhere there is a signal from a local cell phone tower.
It does not use one of the cell phone carriers - this is a free-standing Data-only service.
There are no per-minute charges. There are no Extra Minute charges. The service is priced at $69.95 Flat Rate.
And because it's not connected to the phone system, there are no extra taxes or hidden fees.
$69.95 is the total monthly charge.
Service is restricted to the 50 US Sates.
Service is not available in the Caribbean or Canada, sorry.
How can I tell if service is available in my area?
1. If you turn on your cell phone and get 3 bars, that's a good indication.
2. Submit a Zip Code Request to 1USA.Com and we'll email back a map of your coverage.
The 1USA Wireless Broadband service includes:

- MegaSpeed Content Filtering:
If you're going to visit websites, it's always nice to process them through Anti-Virus & Ad Filtering software before the web page's programming code is delivered to your computer. Hence, our 1USA MegaSpeed software should be installed onto any computer connecting to the internet as an extra layer of protection.
MegaSpeed is an optional service, however there is no additional cost.
- an Email Account at 1USA.Com:
1USA protects its customers from spams, scams & viruses better than any other Email Server. That's our specialty.
Wireless Broadband customers may choose to have a @1usa.com email account, or they can choose to use Yahoo or Google as their Email Server - however 1USA will only be as able to provide our high level of Tech Support if you use our highly-protective Email Service.
No Spams, no scams in your mailbox. Some 1USA customers have the same email account since 1995-96!!

How large is the service area?
The Wireless Broadband service is available in all 50 states.
For instance, you can drive from Long Island NY to Florida and get 100% coverage along the way.
Imagine being able to surf the internet and make VOIP phone calls from your car on I-95 !!!
If you are primarily going to use the service in a few Zip Codes, email us to see if that Zip Code is covered by our Wireless Portable Broadband service.
In addition to Broadband Internet service, here are some cheap Add-Ons that can really save you some money:
- Voice-over-IP (VOIP) Telephone Service:
Optional $49.95 one-time to signup for the Free VOIP phone service.
Free domestic (inside USA) phonecalls. Phonecalls made outside the USA are subject to 3 cents per minute charges.
$30 per year Licensing Fee / Support fee each year. That's all !!
You will receive a small device to plug into the computer's USB 2.0 port. You then plug in a regular telephone to it. (No special phone needed)
It takes 30 seconds to synchronize with the server... and you have instant free phonecalls in the USA.
Calls outside North America are charged approx 3 cents per minute - which is also a good deal.
- 1USA will provide you with software that can hook up to the Internet TV providers.
This should give you TV-Anywhere capability. (depending on what type of TV shows you like to watch)
Imagine sitting out in a parking lot somewhere waiting on someone -- and watching TV on your Laptop !!
This would be great at Car Shows and other outdoor events. You're no longer held back - because there are no wires to plug in to !!!!
The 1USA Wireless Broadband service:
- can provide Internet Access to any website that you visit now - at speeds up to 3.0 Megabytes per second - depending on which cell phone tower you are nearest.
- can replace your Verizon Land Line
If you have a Verizon Line ($28.00) and Verizon DSL ($20.00), and $7.95 for their "required" McAfee Security Suite, and $4.00 for Bandwidth Surcharge, and $4.95 for Inside Wiring Service, and $7 for taxes and Federal Line Charges, you're already spending around $65.00 aren't you? -- and you're limited to the Land Line. If it's worth the $65 for the USB Transceiver to you, you can un-leash yourself and take your computer anywhere.
- can substantially reduce your Cell Phone bills
If your cell phone company charges more than the "minimum charge" you can save some serious dollars by using our Totally Free Phone Service option. It will take less than a year to recover all costs and begin saving some serious dollars.
- can replace your Comcast service (especially the Phone part) (maybe not the ESPN TV channels)
For businesses who are out beyond the major Phone Line Service Areas, or for people who live out in the boonies -- and not close to a Cell Phone Tower, you may need a Yagi Antenna mounted to the outside wall to increase the signal strength.
Generally, if you get 3 Bars on your Cell Phone, the Portable Broadband Service will work great.
Yes, you can use the 1USA Wireless Broadband Service on a Desktop Computer in the house too!!
Need a nice Laptop Computer?
1USA can refer you to great Computer Shops that sell new and off-lease Laptops with Windows XP on them... because Vista requires twice as much memory chips for equivalent speed.
1USA.Com has always maintained a good relationship with individual Computer Repair Shops across America.
Our relationship is that the Computer Shops refer customers to the higher quality 1USA services... and then 1USA refers customers back to the Computer Shop when repairs are needed.
The customer benefits by having the best Internet Service around... and access to the Best Computer Shop in their area.
Different ways to use this service:
If you are a traveling salesperson, imagine having Broadband Internet and Phone from your car -- or from your Laptop in the Meeting Room at one of your customer locations!!
If you are a company with 8 or more phone lines, and if your phone lines go down... this can be a Backup service.
If you are in an area where neither DSL or CableModem is available, here's your only shot at getting Broadband.
If you are a residence and currently paying Verizon and Comcast more than $69.95 total, you can save money.

Who is 1USA?
It's important to know that you are dealing with a legitimate, honest company here.
In one word: "innovator".
1USA.Com started as a software programming company in 1986 on "386" computers; and began to publish CD-Rom software products for Windows 3.1 in 1992 & 1993 when CD-Rom was invented. By 1994-95, sales of our software was worldwide. As a software publisher, we went to Comdex Atlanta and Comdex Las Vegas during those years, where our Comdex Booth was a walk-in Glass Castle with 3-D holographic videos running. We have the distinction of being the only company to be aired on IBM-TV more than once.
In 1996, our Venus Swimsuit Issue and Swimsuit Illustrated CD-Rom software was in every computer store in America and in most computer shops in Europe, South America, and Australia. With a staff of 8, we were shipping 3 skids of CD-Roms per week to the major Software Wholesalers around the world.
In 1995, the Internet was 'invented' and 1USA.Com was the first domain in the world to begin with a numeral.
By the time Windows98 came out, 1USA was up & running its nationwide Dialup Internet Service, then in 2002 our innovative DSL Service -- which is 3-times the speed of comparable Verizon bandwidth.
1USA is proud to be in the position to protect our customers from Brank Frauds, potential Identy Theft attempts, and we daily advise our customers about Internet Security things to be aware of.
We're not the "cheapest" ISP around -- but we are the best!
More reasons to switch to 1USA Wireless Broadband:
Verizon Wireless (Cell Phones):
Cell Phone service is pretty expensive - considering the few benefits ot if.
Those companies love it when you sign a 3-year committment, and they charge you $200 to get out of the contract early - even though you haven't signed any contracts.
The solution: Switch to 1USA Portable Broadband. Month-by month billing. NO long term contracts.
If you're in an area where the copper phone lines don't run at full speed, Verizon is still charging you the full-speed rate.
The solution: Switch to 1USA Portable Broadband.
