1. www.three.com.au ($29/month + $10 for modem rental).
-- I have not tried this with linux but I have heard reports that they
do work. Only 1GB Quota.
-- This is a USB modem thing. I tried it on Mac and PeeCee.
2. www.virginbroadband.com.au ($60/month)
-- This thing is not strictly a roaming thing (part of the AUP
is that you
dont) but you get free local and national calls on the
thing via built
in VoIP to a normal phone and a 4GB Quota
max speed is 1.5Mbit though.
-- This thing I have used and can recommend it. Disgustingly easy to set
Take a look on the whirlpool forums for more.
