I had the same quandry when travelling to work in remote areas of the US. I got a Sierra USB Aircard from my cellphone provider, ATT. Any place I have cell phone, I have internet. This allows me unlimited access for $60 per month. The Aircard was free with the $100 manufacturer's rebate. It has a VPN feature for security and gets both GSM and WiFi. I use it all the time on the go with an AC inverter for the 12 volt outlet in my vehicle; pull over, boot up and get everything from maps and directions to food, fun and lodging. I also use it as a back up on my desktop at home when my wireless broadband goes down.
