This is what I use, but a word of warning - this "mobile internet" package 
is obviously intended for surfing the web on your phone rather than 
teathering a computer to it.  They do a (more expensive) "mobile 
broadband" package intended for connecting computers to the internet. 
However, there is nothing in the T&Cs saying that you can't use the 
"mobile internet" in this way and the marketting-speak on their website is 
so vague and fuzzy that you could happilly interpret it any way you want. 
There seems to be no restriction (such as a firewall) preventing you from 
using it any way you like anyway.
