...seriously, these things aren't cheap. Call up your mobile network and ask them about setting up your phone to use as a modem and ask them how much it'd cost. it's very expensive.

Satalite... i'm not even going to go there, someone else can tell you of the costs...

The cheapest (Ha Ha) is using a GPRS enabled phone linked to the computer by cable or Bluetooth. You will typically pay by the Mb of data downloaded when looking at web pages. If you just want a dial up connection for sending and receiving e-mails on the move your current ISP will help you out but again it`s slow and therefore not cheap.

I tend to avoid using both methods if at all possible. It`s cheaper to use the hotel telephone line because it`s quicker or an internet cafe and use web mail!
