How good is mobile broadband for regional areas of Australia?

I'm planning to head to the south coast of NSW (Narooma) for about two weeks or so, to get a bit of work done. However, I do need to access the Internet (mostly google searches). I was thinking of getting a USB mobile broadband dongle from one of the main providers. For instance, I checked with Optus and they say they have good coverage in Narooma.

However, anecdotally, I've heard that quite a few people have had trouble accessing mobile broadband in regional areas. Has anyone had any experiences along these lines? Is it a 'no go'? Or is the service sufficient, but a bit slow? Is the service intermittent, but otherwise okay? Which provider did you use?
If anyone has had positive or negative experiences with mobile broadband in regional areas, I'd be interested to hear.
