Depending on the new location, the cellular broadband speeds may or may not be enough.
In most cases, Verizon has excellent coverage, but T-Mobile (with their recent 600 MHz expansion) may be quite close.
And, the latency and speed will depend on the carrier and location - best to test!
Even for unlimited plans, they are generally "capped" at some value ... meaning that if you exceed caps regularly (as you _might_ with Netflix video), they will stop or throttle you. Or even cancel the account.
My recommendation would be to check out Dish Networks (their satellite services are available pretty much everywhere) for the movie/tv needs. We had them for a while for that purpose (used Comcast for ISP only) and it was very good!

Subject: OT: Broadband via VRZ cellphone?
I'm considering moving somewhere where cable isn't available. That would severely affect our lifestyle, in that we stream video from a multitude of sources most non-summer nights.
One option might be to cough up the extra charge to get Netflix DVDs by mail again. For other sources (e.g., AMZ), I'm thinking of using my cellular VRZ connection with screen mirroring.
Is that option ridiculous in in relation to speed and data charges? What about interruptions?
