Used the vodafone ones - really good - almost 8 mb in places.

watch the data rates - even the so called unlimited ones often aren't - read the small print!!!

I have a Blackberry on O2 and its apalling,

Worse network coverage I have seen makes Vodafone and Orange look great

I would go with Vodafone on the data side I have one of their USB sticks and its very good.

I've got a Vodafone one. I think I'm paying 9 a month for 3GB. Works great in Portsmouth. Currently out in the sticks and its useless working on GPRS.
