    i was lookin at this the other day. the thing you gotta keep your eye on is useage allowanced and shit like that.
    you can pick some up for £40-£50, and do a pay as you go dealio. some cost as little as £2 a day. depends on how much you use it...
    sorry i can't be of much help. i'm actually more interested in what people have got to say about this!

    I wouldn't touch 3G dongles with a barge pole. You need a decent signal (i.e near a mobile mast) to get decent speed and then when you use your download limit they charge extortionate prices for data transfer. 20p per kb in some circumstances.

    5GB download limit is nothing. You can use 500MB just through surfing in one night.

    Have a look at this man, don't know much about these new fangled usb modem thingymejiggs though, but I'm guessing it's like everything else so shop around for a bit before you commit to one.
