Mobile Broadband for 9.04?

Regardless of what they say, most mobile broadband works out of the box,
plug in the modem, network manager pops up a configuration dialogue,
select provider, give login details, click connect and you're online.

At the moment I'm using 3 and my girlfriend is using bigpond nextG.

The only tricky thing I've had is the bigpond device needed to have a
command sent to it from windows before it would work on 'nix.

And vodafone have their own software for mobile broadband devices on
Linux too.
