Shared internet access via mobile phone

I could use some advice on whether it is possible to have a laptop connected to the internet via a mobile phone, presumably 3G, and then have another 6 laptops connect to this via wireless in order to share the internet connection?

This is an unknown realm to me and was hoping someone could tell me if this is a realistic achievement or if there is another path I should be taking.

Any advice or guidance will be most welcome!

That might be kind of slow. GPRS is likely around 30-60Kbps, or equivalent to a fast dialup. EGPRS via a phone is around 100Kbps, good enough for one user. EGPRS via a PC card is around 170Kbps. EV-DO is somewhat faster, up to 400-500Kbps.
