Bigpond releases faster mobile broadband modems

Telstra’s consumer division has begun retailing its ‘Ultimate’ wireless broadband modem, which has a theoretical download speed of 42Mbps, twice that of the company’s previous fastest offering. As with all wireless broadband services however, real-world performance using the device is likely to vary greatly, the company advising that speeds of anywhere between 1Mbps and 20Mbps are realistic.

The modem has a RRP of $299, however it can be bundled with a 24-month contract at no charge. Plans start at under $10 for 400MB, with 7GB and 12GB plans available for around $40 and $70 respectively. To access these prices however, Bigpond requires that the purchaser have a fixed line service, in addition to at least one other eligible service with the company.
