Huawei 3G USB dongles, locked and unlocked, are the de-facto standard in 
the UK, and probably across the rest of the EU. Commercial gateway 
software and the Shibby build of TomatoUSB support them.


for Shibby source.

Available at phone stores and on Amazon.co.uk. GiffGaff is the cheapest 
UK ISP if you get anyone interested in testing  on your travels.
