Data plan $60 for 5GB per month it is a Bad Buy Connect, I stick with TMOBILE unlimited data plan $30/month.

Not terribly revolutionary. I'd like to see a 2 GB plan for $39.99/mo. That might shake things up a bit.

I'm guessing this will run over the Sprint / Clear WiMax before long...

there was some speculation awhile back that sprint had a deal with walmart to put 4g towers on top of their buildings which makes me wonder if possibly sprint is allowing best buy to roam off their network in exchange for these towers to be built on all of their locations

This could get intersting if Bestbuy jumps into wireless.. Competition is always good for the consumer!

competition is great. this isnt competition. this is running off sprints network with sprints plan. its a fake option really. its just selling sprint service under best buy's name. not that there's really anything wrong with that, but it does nothing for competition.

well if Best Buy ends up running on Sprint/Clearwire there will also be competition with Comcast... as Comcast is rolling out HighSpeed2Go using Sprint/Clearwire 3G/4G bundled with home internet...
