I'm after a USB modem recommendation that is 3G (and 4G if possible) that can be used with multiple SIMs.  This will be used both in NZ and overseas so I would prefer something that is fairly capable.  Effective it would be able to be used with any sim/network that the modem can handle frequency wise.

Does anyone have any recommendations?  Do any of the 2degrees/VFNZ/Telecom ones fit this bill?

No 4G USB modems on the market in NZ sold by any of the carriers

Thanks John - I'm not necessarily limiting myself to something here and 4G is more of a nice to have.

Since no networks in NZ (other than Skinny) lock their devices pretty much every 3G stick on the market will meet your requirements.

Look for one that does at least 850/900/2100 3G. I think one of the MyFi devices do.
