I tried a number of 3G modems for an article I wrote last year and all
of them worked. There were only two brands of modem supplied by the
various telcos, Huawei and Novatel and they are very similar in
Vodafone have a software package for these modems, whichever telco you
use, but it is tricky to get working with a shedload of dependencies. If
is only needed if you want to do stuff like send SMS messages from the
computer. For standard Internet usage, you only need the kernel modules
and your favourite PPP software.
