I am using the Merlin XU780 HSDPA card, capable of doing up to 7.2 Mbps, but since they only offer GPRS here... The connection is crawling. I wasn't able to connect to my Exchange Server and it took about 5 minues to load the Geekzone homepage.
The VMC shows speeds from 400 bps through 2 Kbps. Yes, 400 bps!
Lesson learned: never ever leave the Telecom Apache behind. I should have it here this weekend.
