Saw this today when browsing for laptops at the Bundall, Gold Coast store in QLD. Vodafone K3771 USB Modem $19.95 with 3GB data. I checked and Vodafone stores were still selling this at $49.00
Must be run-out stock. But for $29 (free delivery) it's a good item to have in your bag as a backup. includes 1GB / 15 Day expiry.
Bought one from Sydney south post office. $9.95 for optus prepaid huawei E160e usb modem with starter sim. Sim pack expired on 01/07/2011 already. But still a good deal for an USB modem.

Seems like a good deal for students.
