Mobile Internet

Saw a newspaper ad from the ‘3’ mobile phone company this week, promoting a ‘NetConnect Card’. It’s a standard PCMCIA card to slot into your laptop, which puts you online to the net via 3’s high speed mobile network. Basically, as long as you are within the 3 coverage zones (which I think is mostly only capital cities at present), the card gives you 384k download and 64k upload speeds for around $49 a month. Now that’s not as fast as most broadbank connections, and what with the recent price drops for broadband, not the cheapest either. But it has one overriding advantage – you can be anywhere you like. So, perhaps you are a small business person, or self employed, moving around clients or locations. Absolutely perfect.
