they quite clearly state that you cant use that deal on a laptop or a
computer using the phone as a modem( and their fair use seems to be
unlimited upto 1 gig/month ). they do however have a £10/month deal ( or
did a few weeks back ) which does allow you to use as a modem, and thats
limited to 2 gigs/month ( quite a bit, on a mobile platform where you
are unlikely to be downloading .iso's etc )
