Telstra's new 4G hotspot is designed for cars

Hotspot offers pre-paid mobile broadband

Telstra has released a 4G mobile broadband hotspot intended for use in cars.

The snappily named Telstra PrePaid 4GX Car Wi-Fi is a mobile broadband modem that can be plugged into a car's 12-volt outlet or USB slot.

You can also use an AC connector to plug into a standard power outlet.

The hotspot, which allows up to five devices to connect to it to simultaneously to share a 4G connection, is available for $79. It includes 3GB of mobile data (with a 30-day expiry).

More data can be purchased with Telstra's Pre-Paid Mobile Broadband Data Passes, which start at $10 for a three-day, 1GB pass. The top-tier pass includes 16GB of data with a two-year expiry for $140.

Telstra's CEO, Andy Penn, recently revealed the telco's plan to invest an additional $500 million in its mobile network.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Windows 10 / HP Spectre

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Mark Escubio

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
