For people in the places where ADSL is poor but 3G is better then mobile broadband has to be a real consideration.
I used to dread wet and windy weather, the BRAS profile on the line would drop and take several days to come back up to just 1.5 Mbits. Rotten old BT line with squirrels eating through the cable is no longer an issue for me, or indeed BT sending out engineers to find the fault and it taking until the fourth visit for them to find the fault, then BT trying to charge me for the first 3 visits when they didn't find the fault even though it was eventually found on their network. I had to get my MP involved to sort that out & eventually I had a phone call from the BT Chairman's office admitting I didn't owe them for those 3 engineer visits because the fault was on their network about 400m from my home.
I can't see myself ever going back to a land line at my location unless by some miracle they install fibre optics directly to my house. Wireless 4G is much more likely in the next few years.
The thing is, you can buy a Mifi or dongle & test it where you're going to use it and if it's better you can dump ADSL (and even the line) when the contract expires. No more BT line rental increases or engineer call out charges.
BTW, how did you get 30GB/month ?
