Hi Sauro,

The rates of the major mobile operators are almost the same. The
tariff is usually 10 pesos for 30 minutes GPRS/UMTS/HSDPA. If you have
an unlocked phone, you can just a prepaid sim and tether to your PC or
via Bluetooth. This should also work in Ubuntu depending on your
connection settings to the phone.

There is also a 3rd player named Sun Cellular but the coverage is not
that wide compared to Smart or Globe. In Cebu, I've had good
experience with using Smart.
