Telstra's Next G network, the telco's 3G mobile network that runs on the 850MHz frequency band, is claimed to provide the fastest download speeds of any carrier in Australia. Telstra also promises the widest coverage, claiming to cover 99 per cent of the Australian population.
Mobile Internet is one of the beneficiaries of this coverage and speed, with the Next G network offering theoretical speeds of up to 42Mbps. The ability to work at these speeds on the move is essential for many businesses these days. We round up the best Telstra Next G mobile broadband modems on offer from Australia's largest telco.
4 / 5
With a competitive initial outlay cost, prepaid billing and the Next G network's superior speed and coverage, Telstra's Turbo USB modem is a good package overall. It's predictably pricier than the competition, though, and the 30-day recharge expiry is a downside.
