it will only connect to Telecom's 2100 network which has limited coverage in major cities, best go and pick up an 850mhz device - even get a second hand one for circa $50 on trade me

I can't see why Woosh would be better than getting a Telecom USB modem - the Telecom mobile will have coverage in a lot more places than Woosh ever could.

Also, Woosh has a terrible reputation - for being very laggy and slow. So you definitely would be better off getting an XT data stick or sticking with your current Vodafone one.

You can if you have the right Vodafone card.
The Huawei E800 and Novatel UX870 work fine on XT.

When you mean wireless modem do you mean wireless ADSL modem or Wireless USB modem (Like a vodem)?
