Best Pre-Paid Data Plan For a Visit To Germany? 153

Posted by timothy
from the funken-arund dept.
code prole writes "With two upcoming trips to Germany, and no readily available Internet (Wi-Fi or otherwise) in the location where we'll be staying, I'm looking for a no-contract USB stick and pre-paid data plan. Vodafone has a huge selection of USB sticks but has proven to be unresponsive to questions about data plans. And the US-based T-Mobile Help Center was clueless about getting the device in Europe and using it there. Hopefully the Slashdot community has some suggestions. Any duds to avoid?"

Fido-net style....... aha,.... yes we are on the same page again. Had to go back in memory for that one. :-) however yes you could do this. It would mean building a lot of things however nothing is holding you back from building such a thing. You will have to maybe even create your own handsets (or new software for it) however it can be done with enough time (and $). ;-) tell me when you are done :-)

Some information is given on the costs during the talk, you can find links to the video archive of the talks at

some of the pages are currently down I think because the event network is down however servers should be on the move back to the datacenter. Some of the links are currenlty working so you can already have a peak.

Committees have become so important nowadays that subcommittees have to be appointed to do the work.
