They are quite inexpensive.
We have had one on the bench for a while but havent had time to finish setting it up. We do know of others who have used them with success.
GPRS will frequently change IP address. Dunno why, they just do.
Requires either dyndns or a little ProgramAgent to go find the public IP address and email it out.

Typical Connection Speeds
• Download Speed: 30-60K Bps
• Upload Speed: 10-15K Bps
I believe that's KiloBytes per second.
Upload speed is what matters, since you'll be requesting data from the JACE more so then sending data to it.
10 KBps = 0.078125 megabits per second
or about 80 Kbps, which is a little bit faster than a 56Kbps modem.
In other words... it's slow.
