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.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
