High-speed Connection Sharing

Funny, I was just thinking about this.

We are currently living in a friends apartment in SW Fort Worth while we sell our house in Colorado. Our friend has not been staying at the apartment for quite some time and had disconnected cable and phone service. Thinking that we won't be here for long, I have decided not to turn these services back on. Only problem with that is, no Internet connection for me. I have purchased a wirless network card for my laptop and service from MobileStar so that I can at least go to Starbucks and other locations and get a high-speed connection. The service is great, but it is not at home, and that had me thinking about seeing if any neighbors had a high-speed connection that they'd be willing to share wirelessly.
