3G in Natal

Last week, cell phone operator Claro announced that they would start to offer 3G GSM services in Natal.
Claro is offering both phone services and data transfer (internet) services.
Users of 3G GSM cell phones should, supposedly, be able to transfer data at higher rates; claro says that even live video conferences will be possible.

To transfer data, users will have to buy a small 3G modem, connected to the USB port of notebooks (this site brings information about notebooks in Brazil, as well as businesses selling and servicing notebooks in Natal).
Claro offers several plans, with different prices, data transfer volumes and data transfer rates. If you are going to contract the service, make sure to ask about all the limitations; last I checked, Claro states, in the fine prints, that they only guarantee that the transfer rate will be 10% (ten percent) of the rate established by the contract.
