Ramon: Last night, I found the answer, for you and for me, if: (a)
Your local GSM cell phone operator(s) have 3G HSDPA service available
to your location and (b) If you can get a 3G HSDPA Ethernet Modem,
like the Netgear MBM621, which is not sold in North America. Here's a
link to a review of that Modem:

I believe they are sold in the UK and probably in other countries too.
How you and I can get one, I don't know at this time. This is probably
better than WiMAX. HTH! Lanny
