The newer huawei cards most providers supply with their packages these days are acutally plug and play on linux.

The same applies to your wireless network card by the way - if you get a modern usb dongle it should work and you will probably get faster internet

I actually tend to check on compatibility BEFORE buying such hardware: - Linux Hardware Compatibility Lists & Linux Drivers
