HTC 5G Hub $20/Month with Minimum $15/Month Mobile Broadband Plan over 24 or 36 Months (Save $504) @ Telstra

100

HTC 5G Hub is $480 ($504 off) if you pay for it over a 24 or 36 months with a mobile broadband plan. Mobile broadband plans start at $15 per month with 5gb but suspect that you would burn through that in a few minutes with the 5g hub!

So the hub is $20 per month over 24 months or $13.33 per month over 36 months (plus factor in the cost of the mobile broadband plan which starts at $15 per month).
So the minimum would be $35 per month over 24 months or $28.33 per month over 36 months.

Might be a decent internet replacement if you can't get NBN.

    Hey OP, might be worth mentioning ‘Telstra’ in the title/description.

          I think he meant given 5G speeds you could… Given 1gbps you could burn through it in under 15 minutes if (for example) you accidentally downloaded a large steam game without checking which connection you're on.

            @dyl: don't think anyone is dumb enough to download 10gb game using cellular data

              @dsw460p: …Becomes hard to notice when your mobile data is literally faster than your land line though. Plus, as mentioned, only takes 15 minutes.

                @dyl: yeah even with 100gb of 5g wouldn't waste it on downloading a game faster wouldn't you.
                unless you have have unlimited at home and use your phone's 5g to download it at a faster rate

                  @dsw460p: I think the word accidentally and phrase becomes hard to notice wasn't received correctly.

                  I don't believe someone would intentionally, but as explained when it only takes 15 minutes and there's limited noticeable difference between connections these days (as both are quite fast), such situations arise. The mistake is as simple as forgetting to change back WiFi connections.

                  Did it myself a few days back when I switched to an Optus 4G hotspot after NBN connection went down. Was browsing YouTube later in the day and wasted 3-4GB. If steam prompted for an update or some other big download came up, I would've easily wasted more.

              @dsw460p: We have 2 x 200GB Optus mobile broadband as our home internet. Will not get access to anything but the crappy NBN satellite, so everything we download is through mobile internet. Not sure that can be categorised as dumb…

    Not even close. Sorry, but that comment is ridiculous considering what a pathetically small coverage area they have for their 5G launch. If you can’t get NBN you’re better off just getting something like Optus’ 4G plan instead (if you’re in a coverage area for that as well..)

    Also don’t forget from 30th June next year the 5G coverage is an additional $15. So all up for the 100GB plan you’ll be paying $103.33 a month (if on 36 month repayment plan). Or if you drop the month to month data plan you’re still locked in for 3 years for the device.

      just crazy that you sign up for a 5g modem and plan and be stung with the extra $15, walk away

    •  

      No. 4G is not as good as 5G

        No. 4G is not as good as 5G

        His argument wasn't 4G is better, rather that 5G isn't worth the extra considering you'll get 1/5th the data for ~$30/mo more than Optus 4G.

        For reference, in most areas 4G pushes 50-200mbps these days. Some less, some more (up to around 1gbps).

    Might just be best to go with Optus 4G, Uncles were using the 500GB 4G home broadband in Colyton NSW and they had speeds of 80 Mbps

  •  

    Check this out, Monthly Data Allowance to use in Australia. No excess data charges in Australia, continue to access data at speeds of up to 1.5Mbps once included data allowance is exceeded.

    $480 for device and $360 for unlimited download on 24 months plan. :)

    Wait until the go vet starts taxing you next year for being a non-NBNer.

    I'm with Telstra, but their pricing is so stupid.

    Optus offering Unlimited for $70 p/m, which smashes Telstra:

    *Obviously they have different rollouts, this one comes with a Nokia 5G modem.

    Will I get Optus 5G if I put my SIM in this device?
