Can any of you techies out there help me out.

I am seriously thinking about purchasing this technology as I am going to be on the road a bit in UK and abroad but I find that I really can not find all the info I would like.

I am led to understand that I need a ground station ie airport,hotel etc but someone said to me that there was a system that was linked to mobile phone technology which meant that if you could get a mobile signal you could use the laptop. I have seen nothing on this.

The second point is what or whose software do I need to link up with IE6 or an ISP and does anyone know the costs involved.

Any assistance for an old out of date retired techie would be appreciated.

Something like 'Nokia data suite' software allows you to connect your mobile to the laptop to connect to the internet on a pays as you go ISP
