Hey guys,
We currently have a 3.6mbps USB Vodafone modem (on Vodafone 250MB monthly data plan) and a Huawei e5 (on 2degrees prepay SIM). I'm looking to get 2 more connections and switch all of them to the same provider/device.

The Huawei e5 is quite temperamental and difficult for the average user to get going but in saying that it works well once its started. The Vodafone 3g is just as bad with their Vodafone software being crap. What I'm looking for is something with minimal fuss (e.g. flick this switch and it turns on and it just "works" unlike the Huawei where there are like 3 buttons OR a usb device without the need for bloated and unreliable software, preferably operating system native so no installation needed).

Anyone have any suggestions? Is it worth upgrading to the 7.2mbps devices?

Also any provider allow pooled data so let say we buy 10GB a month and all devices draw on this?
