I would love to run one of these...

On any of the Irish mobile "broadband" networks.
Alcatel-Lucent has announced the WNG which stands for "Wireless network Guardian".
According to Alcatel-Lucent: "The Alcatel-Lucent 9900 Wireless Network Guardian (WNG), generally available March 10, 2008, provides 3G, 4G, and WiMAX wireless networks operators with the granularity and real-time alarms they need to effectively address network congestion and optimize the delivery of IP-based services.
Invented by Bell Labs and incubated in its Alcatel-Lucent Ventures organization, the 9900 WNG is unique in the industry in providing a single solution for monitoring how IP data traffic and behaviors impact the network at its many layers including: RF airtime; channels on a base station; backhaul bandwidth; and network signaling - all in real time. This translates into greater satisfaction for the end user and optimized business models and network operations for the carrier."
This could provide some great insight on how well those 3G & 4G service are delivered to the end-users, what the network load generated is and if they really warrant the ridiculously high fees charged...
