I have availed of a broadband subscription from the 3rd largest mobile communications company in the Philippines - Sun Cellular. The subscription comes with a plug-and-play modem, Huawei E1550, colored white.
Its like a memory stick, only its basically used to surf the internet. What's cool with it is that it has one of the Most Advanced Mobile Broadband Internet technology. Utilizing 3.5G High Speed Packet Access technology on an All-IP network. This modem definitely gives me superior mobile broadband experience! And because it is backed by EDGE/GPRS technology, I can access the internet even in areas where 3.5G is now yet available!
For the modem to work properly in one's computer or laptop, one should meet the following system requirements:
(1) Windows 2000 SP4, Windows XP SP2, Windows Vista
(2) Display resolution: 800 x 600 MP or above
(3) Standard USB interface
The only downside of this modem is that you could not use this in places where 3.5G is not yet active.
But overall, this modem works best for me. I'll be using this for a longer period of time. ^_^
