Mobile Data Roaming (in country)

If you are in your own country – or at least where you have a decent mobile internet connection and at a decent price – then here are 2 solutions which are really good.

Option GlobeSurfer. This company does some good routers that take your SIM card directly – rather than having to invest a mobile modem card. These are quite good – but also quite expensive. Plus you cannot use your SIM card whilst it is plugged in.

JoikuSpot. This is a solution running on Nokia phones. The premium version gives you encrypted traffic. Works pretty well – until you try to connect an Android phone to the JoikuSpot network – at which point the JoikuSpot network cannot even be seen from the Nokia phone. This is related to Android not being able to see adhoc networks – one solution.
