I need to connect a couple of Gentoo laptops to some type of wireless
broadband service during a visit to Sydney, Australia.  There seem to
be some wireless broadband modem rental companies down there:

I also have a couple quad-band GSM cell phones we could tether with a
local SIM card.  Does anyone know if any of these companies (or
others) have good data service:

Does anyone have experience with this stuff?  Do wireless broadband
modems work in Gentoo?  Does tethering to cell phones work?
