is there any way of getting a pc card without buying it at $400 odd dollars? and without having to pay $40 per month. i am already a woosh customer with the desktop modem. so i only need the pc card then i can access broadband from my original account

I just got another one for my flatmate, it's only $99.

The PC cards are only $99 from woosh now, and if you get one from Trade Me Woosh are going to charge you $99 to 'activate' it anyway.

I asked about it because the internet at tech on wifi is so firewalled as to be useless. Have a woosh at home as the backup internet connection, and they said it was fine to have the card too so long as both are not in use at the same time. Go for heaps on trademe when there are any available and I dont want to get a second connection just to get one for only $99.
