3G Sticks Everywhere These Days

This is probably not big news to most but I just realized recently when walking through a German city how many people sit in cafes and restaurants with a notebook and a 3G USB dongle these days. I could swear it was still much different last year. Most people I saw were (still) using notebooks instead of the smaller netbooks, so I guess that trend is not yet as pronounced. I didn't talk to the people I saw so I don't know if they are using prepaid daily, hourly or monthly options or if they have a postpaid contract. Both are available in Germany. Also, it would be interesting if the connectivity is provided by the company they work for or if they are paying themselves. Would be quite interesting to find out.
