Cost-wise it's not an expensive experiment.. the stick is 20€ and

you don't need to buy additional credit for testing).

Those things do change with countries :-)

Yeah, it's all about marketing etc. Whilst on the subject - has anyone
tried working with a UMTS stick with a pay-as-you-go or prepaid card?

I use a "3" UMTS pay as you go stick the only problem i get is the darn
DNS settings but that is just a quick hack and done i use UMTSMON the only
thing i have come against is it has to be "run as root" from my user else i
get loads of ppp errors (all down to permissions and groups but i cant find
the right combo yet and not had any luck on here either .
