I’ve grown tired of the restrictive filtering at work (a necessary evil of working in a school I guess!). I can easily bypass the filtering using ssh-tunnelling (especially as no-one else at work has a clue how all this works 🙂 ) but the tunnel isn’t very stable and the connection is often slow. Incidentally I was able to use the same technique to bypass the filtering imposed by the government in China.
Fast, fairly reliable, no problems with streaming data, all Internet apps work with it. Bad points of Three mobile broadband:
Occasionally the connection drops out and you need to disconnect and reconnect.
Sometimes the latency is high so the connection doesn’t feel responsive.
The latency makes it impossible to play online games like World of Warcraft (to be playable).
