Telstra claims the Elite Mobile Wi-Fi is "Australia's fastest battery-powered 3G mobile Wi-Fi device" and allows up to five Wi-Fi enabled devices to connect to it wirelessly for shared mobile Internet access.

The Telstra Elite Mobile Wi-Fi is a similar device to Telstra's current Pre-Paid Mobile Wi-Fi modem, with the exception of speed — the new Elite device is theoretically capable of 21Mbps download speeds rather than 7.2Mbps. The Telstra Elite Mobile Wi-Fi also has an OLED screen that shows information including signal strength, the number of devices connected and battery level.

"With the press of a button this mobile hotspot can connect up to five devices to the internet at speeds up to twice as fast as competitor 3G products in capitals and many regional areas," said Warwick Bray, executive director Telstra mobility products. "The Telstra Elite Mobile Wi-Fi should also prove popular with our business customers who increasingly use Wi-Fi enabled devices such as tablets and cameras and require mobile connectivity to support fast file transfers and to work flexibly while away from the office."

The Telstra Elite Mobile Wi-Fi will be available for pre-paid customers on Tuesday 12 April for $129, and includes an initial 5GB of data that can be used over 90 days. It is also available for Telstra business customers $29 per month with 1GB included data over 24 months.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
