Best Christmas deals: Prepaid mobile broadband

A mobile broadband package may just be the gift you've been looking for!

Telstra prepaid wireless broadband

Price: $129 or $179

Telstra may not offer the best value, but you do get what you pay for — the biggest network in Australia, with the best speeds and coverage. Telstra has two options for prepaid wireless broadband: $129 gets you the MF626 USB modem, while $179 gives you the Turbo USB modem, the latter providing up to 7.2Mbps download speeds compared to the MF626's 3.6Mbps. Both include 75MB of data to start, but Telstra will also give you 1GB of bonus data if you activate your new service before 31 December, and will double your data allowance if you recharge $40 or more before the same date. The expiry date for all recharge amounts is 30 days but if you recharge before 30 days, your credit expiry date is re-set to 30 days from the date of recharge. Recharge options are $20 (150MB), $30 (225MB), $40 (300MB), $50 (625MB) and $60 (750MB), $80 (3.5GB) and $100 (6GB).

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

Anthony Grifoni


For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

Steph Mundell


The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

Andrew Mitsi


The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

Simon Harriott


My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
