I have a t-mobile dongle thing which is OK but they have a trans-proxy 
on the web interface which compresses images and inserts javascript into 
the page to allow you to click them for the full resolution.

Unfortunately this f**ks up a good proportion of sites that make 
anything more than cursory use of javascript.

The solution seems to be to tunnel your web browsing across a vpn to 
your server and out from there.
