Wireless access in Japan

Today I recieve a mail from Debian user who is about to come to Japan for business trip.
He plan to rent A2502 HSDPA wireless modem for connection.

Yes, the patch is in the mainline kernel in Aug, 2008

I see it .

The 'Unlimited' data service need a preproetary stack software on the supported OS, Windows and Mac.
My patch support a lower layer, recognize as normal modem, but do not provide such a stack.
If you want to use 'unlimited data service', you are forced to use another OS rather than Debian Linux :-(

You may want to use Debian GNU/Linux with it, you may be charged 'EXPRESS PACKET PLAN' rate.

I recommend for you to use a wifi service such as FON, FON-livedoor, mobile point, and FREESPOT,
(cf. http://www.freespot.com/) in metropolitan area, on conbination with a data card.
Livedoor which is commercial wifi provider support FON user without charge in their service area.
A mobile-point wifi can be used by daily/2W/3M ID slip, 1000Yen/2W, sold in convenience stores, 'family mart'. http://tm.softbank.jp/wlan/famiport/index.html
It is provided on many public building and restaurant such as stations, subways and fast food shop.

From CHANGI Singapore International Airport

ANA Lounge is poor I regreted my airplane selection to leave from singapore, because of such a poor ANA Lounge that I discouraged more than Mar-Lion, which is said world 3 worst discouragement. In CHANGI Airport, many traveler said the world finest lounge is Singapore Airline's one. But, ANA one is world's po-oooo-orest lounge in my past experiences. It shares rooms with China airlines. No shower, no amusement, no surprise at drink....etc. OK, if I have a chance to go to Singapore, I will select Singapore Airline to come back Japan.
