There are several separate discussions that have surfaced over the last few years regarding the use of 3G or HSPA+ as an alternative to ADSL. The major problem is that I cannot find a central point of discussion that helps me to configure an environment quickly an painlessly.
So, I would like a discussion between professionals that will give us all a reference point to return to whenever we need to refresh our thinking on getting low cost broadband connectivity to our clients.
With that as the starting point let me then say that I like the latest pricing for wireless from all of the providers. I have chosen 8ta for a provider in this discussion as a starting point, but I frequently swap out between the other providers.
Your ADSL line is down & there is no way to get it back for the next 3 weeks. You use a Dynamic DNS provider to point your MX and other domain pointers to your internal server, which uses the standard internal IP address provided by Telkom (10.0.0.2)
You have 10+ rules configured for port forwarding and you now need to get the site running on 3G as a matter of urgency. Your router does not want to know about your 3G dongle, so you are forced to use an alternative means of getting hour site stabilized in the minimum amount of time without spending any money.
You have a 3G dongle with a 8ta 10G contract.
What do you do? What have you already done? What pain have you already endured?
I will post my thoughts a little later, but I thought that it would be great to first get the discussion going.
Looking forward to your inputs and thoughts.
