I looked into this briefly a month ago.

Here is a bookmark that I saved
http://www.flashinthepan.ca/computer-tips/linux-computer-tips/rogers-rocket-mobile-internet-stick-on-gentoo-linux-part-1

If the USA is any indication, I saw lots of people there with Ubuntu laptops
and netbooks
with T-Mobile and Sprint USB sticks that work without the need for any
special drivers.

Hope that helps.
