Mobile Broadband

I’m currently in the process of searching for a mobile broadband company. Knowing that I’ll be spending quite a bit of time in the car over the course of the next few weeks, I’d like the ability to still have Internet access, no matter where we happen to be. I’ve narrowed it down to the two companies that are known the most for their mobility; Sprint and Verizon. I’m wondering if anyone has had either one of these services. Which would you recommend? Which gives the best bang for the buck? Any answers would be greatly appreciated.

Sprint has the PX-500 by Pantech Wireless for $9.99. It’s going to cost me about $59.99 a month for unlimited usage.

Verizon has the PC5750 PC Card for $49.99 at a cost of $59.99 a month. This requires a two year contract.

Now, while Sprint is looking to be the better of the two (price wise) I’m wondering if anyone has ever heard of a prepaid option through either of these companies? Knowing that it will really only be used for a few weeks, there’s no real point in my having to get a two year contract for it.

So what would you suggest?
