Some cultural background:

Here in Paraguay people call 3G modems "a soap" (jabón) since almost all
of them are small and it has a sopa-like shape. You hear it all the time
"can you lend me your soap".. 

Perhaps a little soap might be meaningful for other deployments? Maybe
not :)


P.S.: IIRC a telco here started a marketing campaign in which they
coined that phrase (3G modem == soap).
