No Fixed Office

I have gone the path of having a mobile broadband connection. I get a connection almost anywhere. For the most part the bandwidth is great. Occasionally it drops off a little, but this i think is mostly in area's that are close to the limit of coverage on 3G service.

Additionally it is always getting better, the service that i have used to have a lot more connection problems, probably 1 in 3 days take a couple of tries to get a connection, not it is more like 1 in 7 or 1 in 10 days i have a connection problem.

Price is reasonable as well $40 a month for 5GB transfer, no time limits.

It figures that in one of the only countries in the world that charges for luggage carts in international airports, they also charge for airport WiFi.

In Hong Kong's airport, WiFi - and luggage carts - are free. The WiFi is provided by the territory's main telco/ISP and presumably they see this as a promotion for their services elsewhere - which includes subscription-based WiFi with hotspots in every phone booth and 7-Eleven.
