The thing is that you will need to use the internet within that
month... where as with mobile phone prepaid plans I think your credits
expires after 6 months...

It would probably work out for people who know when they are going to
need it, and they only need it for a few month not like continously
for the whole year.

By the way does anyone know how does the modem work? Does it let you
do a PPPoE from your computer over the 3G network, and connect to the
net? If that's the case then it wouldn't act as a NAT firewall as most
people are used to with their routers right?
