Are they available other than at Harvey Norman?

I'm running an event in January and one of our rooms has no wifi and we need to provide up-to 30 people with some connectivity. We're looking at mobile broadband options even if we have to restrict the number of GB they can use.

I'm open to suggestions as I'm not near a Harvey Norman.

Based at Auckland University - Event is http://linux.conf.au


We're using a different building for our hardware sessions and the University can't provide WiFi equivalent to the main venue. Hence looking at 5-10GB of mobile as a Plan B.
