If you're looking for better wireless throughput from your laptop (and who isn't?), Option has added a new HSDPA PC card to its repertoire, which already included an internal card designed to be pre-installed by laptop manufacturers. The new card can achieve transfer rates of 1.8Mbps on HSDPA networks, and can fall back to UMTS and GPRS/EDGE if no HSDPA network is available. If you want to use one right now, though, you'd better be prepared to move to Austria, where Mobilkom Austria wil become one of the first carriers to support the new card.
