Interim option while waiting for 5g. Average when it works.
Having explored many possibilities as an interim measure while waiting for 5g to be rolled out in my area, this was a bargain deal when I signed up. 250 gig for under $50 with a modem included on a 12 month plan. The process to sign-up was relatively easy and the delivery of the modem did not take long. However the notion that you simply insert sim and start modem and you are online is misleading. This was a cumbersome process. However the discussion board was of immense help. Initially the modem felt like a dud. Kept dropping out. After a week...or so of perseverance once it started going it was relative fine and gave speeds similar to landline ADSL broadband. However, the modem gets very very hot and needs to be turned off regularly and this is where you may get serious issues of connectivity. It misbehaves initially but eventually gets online. For the price it is a good deal when it works and for the most part it does, if you know how to tweak the settings.

3Days to have some card activated
Got new SIM card. Rang them was told have to wait for Optus to Port my number to them. 24hrs later loose my internet from Optus. Then another 24hrs later with no phone (thanks) finally it's got signal but no internet, ring again then they connect 4G.
I think after that porting your old number is a pain in the head just go with new number so you won't lose your internet or phone lucky I had a work phone to ring them but so far so good.

Questions & Answers
I just got my mobile broadband yesterday set it up and it was functioning well for the first 3hours but after that i don't have an internet connection until this morning. Is this part of the drop out? If so how do i lessen this drop outs? I read in one of the reviews here that something can be done to avoid or at least lessen it.
