    Well Telstra advertise 8mbps on the elite but according to their own sales people you would be lucky to get 1.5mbps.
    So Vivid is the only way to go.

          Yeah this is what Im getting at.
          So it looks like Vivid with shit recharge prices if you only want small amounts per month or Telstra with good recharge prices but nowhere near advertised speed ?

            Dubs. you can use OS4.3 on the iphone to create a personal wireless hotspot

            Or you can get these little things like this;

            Pre-Paid Mobile Wi-Fi – Telstra

              Telstra also told me they would have 100mbps by the end of the year. which is the usual for them. too little too late too expensive.

                Its absolutely no different to ADSL2+ theoretical maximum of 24mbps but someone actually getting 8 or 12.

                just like distance from the exchange affects ADSL, mobile network coverage in your area affects download speeds.

                if you can get vivid in your area, it's probably the fastest. If you cant, chances are Telstra is the best option. Telstra has THE fastest mobile broadband network. The others arent even close.

                  Best bet is to try and borrow one, a friend of mine worked for vivid and apparently if your speed is lower than 1.5 you are entiltled to a refund, but if it's only 1.6 you are stuck with it. He finished up in January 2011 so hopefully the info is still current.

                    We run vivid wireless at work.

                    Runs 20 computers off it surprisingly well, with good individual download/upload speeds

                      We are using Telstra, only because that is all there is available in Australind. We don't have a landline, it's a Home Gateway modem, we have 2 computers on LAN and 3 phones, an iPad and 2 iPods on WiFi. The only time it is really slow is between about 7.30 and 9 at night.
