I've just moved into a new place and can't get ADSL broadband as theres no phone line, so I need the 4G/3G/Mobile Broadband expensive stuff. Use about 30GB a month. What are my options?? These are the ones I've come up with so far:
Optus Mobile: 20GB @ $100 mth for 2 yrs, could tether it and get a free phone in the process too - https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/221265.
Optus Mobile Broadband: 12GB @ $60 mth, SIM Only, month to month plan. Could put this in my Optus 3G mobile broadband device that I've already got that seems pretty decent/fast enough for surfing/gaming etc. Or if I sign up for 12 months can get the latest 4G device included for 12GB @ $60 a month - http://www.optus.com.au/shop/broadband/mobilebroadband/
Vodafone Mobile Broadband: 12GB @ $60 mth, 20GB @ $80, both on 12 mth contracts - http://www.vodafone.com.au/personal/sim-cards/sim-only/state...
Virgin Mob Broadband: 12GB @ $40 mth, SIM Only, month to month or if sign up for 12 mths get a device included. If I sign up with these guys though what are the speeds like? Can you game on this? I guess these questions also apply to Vodafone cos not sure what they're like speed/gaming wise either - http://www.virginmobile.com.au/mobile-broadband-plans
Also it looks like Vodafone and Virgin are on the Optus network, if I use my Optus locked 3G mobile broadband device I already have and get their BYO modem option (12GB @ $40 mth to mth) will it work in my Optus device??
UPDATE: Ok so I ended up getting a 20GB/$80 a month deal on a 12 month contract with Optus. Deal is 2x Optus 10GB/$40 a month which includes unlimited calls, texts, 13 no's, etc. Am putting one sim in my phone (porting no) to take advantage of the unlimited calls and the other sim goes in my mobile broadband device. Its this deal - http://www.optus.com.au/shop/mobilephones/SimBYO?SID=con:pos... Seems like a pretty good deal. Have good speeds etc, so think Im happy. Also Id really like to thank everyone for all their help etc re this holy shit I cant get ADSL broadband moment. It was horrible but with OzBargain friends you can succeed lol. Thanks heaps guys :D
