plasmoid-networkmanagement - How to connect?

After Will's talk about new KDE Features for 11.4 on the openSUSE Conference, I thought I'd finally give the networkmanagement plasmoid a try and installed it.
While it looks neat and apparently would show additional information about my connection (compared to knetworkmanager), I was unable to find a button or other UI element that would allow me to connect to a 3G Network.

Has anyone managed to use this for connecting? How?

I was just lucky that I had nm-applet installed, otherwise I would not even have had a way to get online at all... :-)
