    How best to get some one-off mobile broadband?

    I've got a massive project on at work that requires my presence this Monday morning at 4AM.

    A few of us who have to be there have decided we'd head into the office the night before and watch the Blackcaps match on the big TV in our office the night before and then just go onto site straight after.

    I intend to stream it (in HD), however have since realized that we can't use the work WiFi for streaming as it has things that block streaming etc, not to mention the slow speeds. I want to buy some one off data on mobile broadband that I can run on my Mac and have it mirror the stream to the TV. Can't seem to find any options on mobile broadband besides ongoing packages.

    Any thoughts on how best to do this?

    Are you in Auckland? I could lend you my GlocalMe G2 if you'll drop it back again afterwards.

    Datapack costs are here, chuck NZ in:

    You're a legend for offering, but their data plans seem really pricey! I'd likely go through 10-12GB of data in the one night of streaming I think!

    If someone has a Chromecast; Skinny do $2 for 4 hours of unlimited data. It mentions no tethering or hotspots, so I'm not sure whether you'd get away with it on your Mac.
