  Hi Sam,

Since I haven't used Africoms modem I did some quick reading up on the 
evdo modem, which if I'm correct is a 3G modem. I've been very 
successful, using a script I downloaded, using the econet modems (tried 
2 different ones) called sakis3g from www.sakis3g.org. All you really 
need at the end of the day is the APN details (econet's is econet.net) 
and login + password if applicable.

If you get stuck give us a shout.
