Mobile broadband settings for different service providers in different countries
mobile-broadband-provider-info package contains mobile broadband settings for different service providers in different countries. The Package contains only informational files so it's safe for distributions to grab updates even during feature freeze and maintenance stages.

When you want to configure a mobile broadband connections there usually is some service provider specific information you have to know before the connection can be established. Problem with this information is that it's highly technical for an ordinary consumer and it's available only from service providers  web page or from Microsoft Windows installation media that becomes with tie-in subscription devices.

The interesting side of this information is that it's the same for every user of a given service provider. This means that service provider specific information can be stored in a database. When this database is available the information can be fetched there and the ordinary user does not need to bother about it.

Service provider specific information is stored in a XML file. XML is not the most optimized format for a database, but it's easy to read, understand and edit.

The database is released under Creative Commons Public Domain (CC-PD).
