Off the Grid but Still Conectd (part 2)

We made the first steps towards going off the grid last year when we got rid of our land line (and therefore our broadband connection). We then purchased two top end smart phones (SE P990i) and more importantly data plans which gave us 3G connection speeds(384Kbs where available). Having no fixed line broadband at home means we use the phone as a modem and connect via the USB to our PC's. Not as slow as you would think and with a 400Mb plan each plus the ability to upgrade to 6Gb it's not too restrictive either. I wouldn't recommend this for everyone though especially if your using lots of bandwidth with video, games and music but the connectivity works great for us.
