How to setup wireless broadband in Ubuntu 11 ?

Although a Microsoft fan boy, just wanted to taste the Linux flavor for awhile. To understand the things on Linux universe, installed Ubuntu 11 on my windows Server 2008 R2 with the help of WUBI. Now setting up the Tata Photon+ Wireless broadband on Ubuntu.

Select the Add/Edit connections from the Network menu from your top right bar

 Select the Mobile broadband tab and click on Add, Choose Huawei from the combo box

 Ubuntu comes with these many providers pre-configured for India, Can we expect this is Win 8 ?
 Apply the settings and start using the network.
No installation of drivers from a mounted disc drive, no need to install any third party software(Tata Photon software) and no more hassles. It's simple and amazing.

Love this feature from Ubuntu.
