Slingshot announced today that it was launching the nation’s first pre-paid wireless broadband internet service. The service will allow people to connect to the Internet via their laptops with DSL speeds. Accessing the service will require no credit check or contract.

"Rather than paying upwards of $75 a month for 'unlimited' wireless Internet access, Slingshot enables you to cut your costs and doesn't require a long-term contract," said David Vindici, chairman and CEO, Slingshot. "You're free to access the Internet wirelessly and on your terms."

Slingshot says that the service will be available starting June 1st, 2008 at select retailers nationwide and online. It’s not clear if the service requires special notebook cards or USB modems like normal providers do, though I would assume an adapter of some sort would be needed.
