    Optus' budget Wi-Fi modem won't give you exceptional speeds or indeed any kind of exceptional experience, but it equally won't burn a hole in your wallet. 1

    If you're within Optus' 4G coverage zones, it's possible to achieve some blinding speeds at quite reasonable prices, although the coverage maps aren't as extensive as we'd like. 1

    The business-centric, post-paid Telstra Wi-Fi 4G hotspot offers speed across a wide range of areas in Australia, but it's not the best value around. 2

  • Vodafone Pocket WiFi Extreme

    CNET Rating6.8

    Vodafone's offering is cheap, but inconsistent network performance issues are still a problem, making this less extreme than its name implies. 2

    CNET Rating6.0

    Seagate expects a premium for its Wi-Fi feature, but it's one with many limitations. The Satellite will appeal to a tiny niche, but the rest of us will want more bang for our buck. 2

  • Vodafone Mega Modem

    CNET Rating7.9

    Vodafone's new modem isn't entirely mega, but it did show us the promise of better speeds than we're used to seeing out of the carrier.

    Telstra's Elite Wi-Fi modem improves on the original in almost every way, but data costs are still a problem. 14

    Optus' Mini WiFi has some impressively shiny hardware, but the carrier's charging regime remains a significant roadblock to our recommendation of it. 21

  • ViViFi Wi-Fi hotspot

    User Rating9.0

    The technology behind the ViViFi is quite interesting, but the end results in terms of actual broadband speed leave a lot to be desired. Vividwireless is going to have to do a lot better than this to compete in the Australian mobile broadband space. 12

  • Telstra Ultimate USB modem

    Though so much depends on where you use it, the Ultimate USB modem has the potential to be faster than a fixed-line ADSL connection and doesn't cost much more than any other Telstra wireless broadband modem. 17
