My cellphone is my life. And my watch. And my chew-toy.
DSL, being in my opinion superior to cable (at least here in Vancouver), is worth the hassle of the required landline that Telus imposes on the general populace. 
I'm lucky enough to be on an old FIDO plan that gives me unlimited incoming calls and unlimited outgoing local calls.  No-one here DOES this anymore for a reasonable price. 
I also have an incoming Florida number via Skype for my PC.

Odd as it sounds, when I 411 myself online, my cellphone comes up as an "unidentified land line", and my Skype number comes up as a cellphone number.  Mosssst interesting.

Anyway, nice to meet you all.
I've been looking for an excuse to post.

We only have a landline in the house for our internet connection. But my dad has recently seen some articles on using mobiles for high speed internet access.

Has anyone managed to achieve some decent speeds with a mobile as a form of internet connection before?

I have a land line and my mobile, but perhaps that the land line will be replaced soon by a Fiber connection.

Achieving decent speeds is actually pretty easy, the difference is that bandwidth on a mobile phone is crazy expensive in some areas. For example I know that I'm charged 5/kb for data useage. However in the states, possibly Japan and Europe, bandwidth is dirt cheap on mobiles.

1 landline and 1 mobile phone that I only use to call my mom after school.

Cellphone service isn't all too cheap in Canada.
