If you use one over there it will be expensive to run

if you are planning on going abroad then i would reccomend 3 as there price plan is similar to it here in the uk. Although customer services can be a bit off. They are ok. but the thing is if you do need to ring up then you maght have to wait for a few hours on the phone to speak to them as this is what they did to me....

woodchip, that is what i was afraid of.

G4V1N, thanks for the tip.

I'll leave this open a bit longer.

Internet Caff's are plentiful. Most shopping centers in Spain have free w-fi.

Not wishing to hi-jack this thread, anyone have any similar ideas about using a dongle in the USA?

my reply to you

You might have to look at getting a USA mobile broadband dongle. As if you use on of the ones in england then your bill will be sky high. Because you are out of europe. That is your best bet...
