Come to think about it, when LTE arrives in sg, and you can use this or a hp as hot spot with ac adaptor, why need fixed line internet...hmmmm. . Don't know. . .

Found A Few Other Options.. I think might be Cheaper

Haven't got the full price yet.. hope it will be cheaper..

From Aztech HW553 (Just the router) $59.. so need to get a 3G SIM Card USB Donggle.. not sure how much the donggle will cost..

And the other options from Pro Link
Donggle - PHS101 and 3G Router - PWH2004
Have yet to find out price.. hopefully its cheaper..

Pro of the above 2 options.. I can use the Donggle for my MacBook Pro.. and also the Donggle and 3G Router outside for iPad2..

Hi, just a precautionary from me. If you are using a micro-sim, it may damage your 3g stick when you remove the sim card. My 3g stick got damage (sim contact pin broke) when i try to remove the sim card and somehow, the contact pin got caught in the slightly recessed gap between the micro-sim and the adaptor.

I am using this engenius 3g router...it works for me $79 bought at IT show. RP is $99. I can use it when travelling too. It needs a broadband stick to plug into the usb port and has a rj45 port for lan cable. It can use up to 4 hours...if more just plug into a laptop to recharge while having the internet not interrupted.
