3g stick

Not familiar with what one can get while in the USA as far as internet on the go. Would like to stay "connected" while bringing boat from USA to Canada. Is there a pay as you go service? Any advice is always greatly appreciated

I personally have been using a T-Mobile Jet USB which costs $40 a month and provide 5GB of 3G and unlimited slower service after than. I think I paid $150 for the stick without contract.

It was the least expensive I could find and works well for me all throughout the Puget Sound. Coverage will of course depend on your area.

Virgin mobile, $99 for the usb stick and $40 month unlimited access. They use Sprints 3g network.
