Default Best 3G broadband "dongle" deal

Hi,
Can anyone suggest a 3G data only plan, I have an unlocked donge but need a SIMM to go in it, or just a package with the USB stick included.

The main consideration is how long the data expiry is, Optus is 1 month which seems pretty poor.

Many Thanks!

I am using dodo - which is off optus. Not great speeds here but not much is and reliability is much better than i expected it to be. and its much cheaper and expiry is 12mths/15gb. Wouldn't be using it at all if i could get adsl but thats another story

I bought a 12GB dongle from 3 for $149 and it doesn't expire for 12 months. Impressively fast (especially as I live in quite a built up area). See http://shop.three.com.au/prepaid-bro...n:lp:mbb:plans for more info. So far so good!
