Best home wireless / mobile broadband 


If you want a hefty amount of mobile data on Telstra, you'll need to part with a pretty penny. That being said, $150 per month currently gets you 50GB of data and a bonus 30GB, for a total of 80GB per month. It's not cheap, but at the least, it's flexible. 

If you're actually hoping to replace a fixed line connection with 4G, 80GB might be a touch tight, but should lost you unless you're streaming every single night of the week.

You can either get this plan on a 12- or 24-month contract. If you opt for the 24-month contract, you'll get a Netgear Nighthawk M1 portable modem for no extra cost. If you go for 12-months, you'll only get the SIM.
