Most routers with mobile data support actually use a USB modem for connection. I have a Cisco SRP 521W here and it works with Telecom's Sierra Wireless adapters.

Even the Telecom supplied ADSL Router TG582N has a USB Port on the side to support 3G Backup.  They should work with some of the Telecom supplied 3G Dongles.

And they give you those for free when you signup to Fixed Broadband these days.




I work for Telecom Spark, but as always my views are my own.
