Telstra has made good on its promise to add a mobile Wi-Fi hotspot to its range of devices that use its LTE 4G network. Business customers can buy the device from today, while general consumers can purchase it from March 27.
The hotspot allows connections for up to five devices, which is a boon for anyone travelling with a tablet and a PC. As with the original dongle version, right now it’s largely being sold on 24-month contract plans (with a $99 up-front payment on the cheaper plans as well), though you can get it for $299 outright. Given that the dongle is now also available in a prepaid version, I imagine we’ll see that happen eventually with the hotspot as well.
