Routing issues with 3 (3G UK)?

No, I never had a vps at the time, it was a commercial vpn that I tried. At the end of the day mobile phone broadband data isn't or wasn't cheap and they would probably have suspended the account if I did manage to cheat their system. It is just that they were advertising it as unlimited, that said even regular unlimited broadband companies like Virgin have a fair use policy that restricts you at peak times.

Did you try a VPN tunnel on port 443 (SSL)?

Made made me smile :-) Nothing like un-boxing a brand new top end motherboard bundle to get you hard ;-)

I signed an 18 month D/D contract 8 months ago with 3 where I get 15gb's/month for 15/month which I think is a good deal, I notice they are no longer doing it, just monthly D/D contracts for 10gb's/month at 15. Only downside as already mentioned is slow downloads when network is busy. Before that I had tmobile's so called 15/month unlimited plan where they have a "fair use" policy that limits you to 500mb's of downloads that you use in a few days and the rest of the month it is surfing only, no file downloads or youtube videos. They even manage to block the use of a vpn or proxy so you can't "get round" their fair use restrictions.

I don't live in London, I actually live in a rural area in South East England. BT's DSL here is 4Mbps, but Three's DC-HSPA here is 25-30Mbps.

I have to do a lot of things on my phone because BT can't be bothered to fix the lines here (they're always broken).

dont forget that 3 is still one of the smallest network providers in the UK
i think they do pretty well to show the big guys up on price...

Lucky you. Got suckered into the "HSDPA+" dongle, and I'll be lucky if I get that at 3 am. Usually hovers around 512Kbps-1Mbps mark. Guess too many tall buildings in the area.
