Sweet problem :)

Which Linux distribution / version / architecture ?
(eg. Ubuntu 14.04 64bit)

And what's the make / model of your USB mobile dongle ?

and preferably, which internet service provider ?

You could always stick the SIM in a cheap android phone and turn on WiFi hotspot .. then just enable WiFi on your laptop (?)
