Thanks for all the answers, I'm having a look at the whirlpool site now.

I had an occasion to try Telstra's NextG usb modem, it does work in
Linux (at least using Debian/Sid, as of last month).  Though, the speed
was terrible and so is the price. I was quite far from the CBD, so I
don't know if it's always that slow.

I don't have my setup files for this here, but I can send it later if
somebody is looking for this.
