Often described as a hotspot in your pocket, a mobile broadband modem with Wi-Fi can have multiple devices connected for shared mobile broadband access over a telco's 3G network. These devices act in a similar manner to regular USB modems to access an Internet connection, but their flexibility means they can connect more than just your notebook.
We've rounded up the best Wi-Fi mobile broadband modems in Australia, both from carriers and third-party manufacturers.
5 / 8
Virgin Mobile's Wi-Fi Modem works just as well as a regular USB modem, but adds the convenience of a wireless connection for up to three computers. The flaky Optus network may be an issue for some, but this compact unit is cordless, rechargeable and hugely convenient.
