As another alternative you can use data cables or bluetooth
connections with your mobile phone and access the net. Depending on
the service and the way you set up the connection you can have
connections with speeds of 9600 bps up to several hundred bps
depending on whether you use "dial up" GPRS with a GSM provider, EDGE
which is much faster with a GSM provider, UMTS with 3G service
providers, EVDO with CDMA providers all give faster speed.
